The Caribbean Public Health Agency (CARPHA), in collaboration with the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI), National Institutes of Health (NIH) in the U.S, will host a Caribbean Regional Research Grant Writing and Implementation Science Workshop. The workshop proposes to encourage Caribbean researchers to investigate the strategies needed to deliver or implement interventions demonstrated to be effective, bringing these strategies to scale as well as identifying a plan for sustainability. The workshop will be held at the Marriott Hotel, Georgetown, Guyana on April 24th – 26th, 2017.
Workshop topics will include tools and tips for use in writing grant applications, an overview of implementation research, defining implementation research topics and specific aims and evidence-based project design. To make the workshop a practical hands-on experience, applicants must submit a concept paper with their application. Selected applicants will discuss strategies for improving their paper/proposal during the workshop.
Workshop participants will be only those who compete for and receive one of the available CARPHA Travel Awards. Eligible applicants are Caribbean nationals who reside and work in the region. Travel awardees will be selected on a competitive basis through an evaluation of submitted applications and other supporting documents. Travel Awards (airfare and accommodation) will be available to the top 15 qualified candidates. Candidates who qualify to receive a travel award will be required to pay a processing fee of USD $250.00.
