In line with its strategic plans for the period 2020-2023, the Amsterdam Public Health research institute has provided a total of four grants to APH researchers.

APH offered a strategic scheme for the coming years consisting of grants for:

  • Implementation Fellowship (2 fellows of €80,000 each, spread over 2 years)
  • Academic Collaboration Fellowship (1 fellow of €80,000, spread over 2 years)
  • Embedded PhD (1 PhD candidate of €120,000, spread over 4 years)

These grants provide a 50% coverage of the costs as proposed in the budget of the application, to be matched by a non-academic partner, private partner or the applicant’s research department.

Respectively these grants should: (1) stimulate research contributing to and inspired by the relatively young field of implementation science; (2) stimulate sustainable collaborations of APH researchers with non-academic partners, such as long-term or public health care organizations, public health authorities or societal stakeholder organizations, and (3) stimulate societal or economic valorization of our research by supporting and promoting collaboration with private partners.
