Call for Proposals 2018: The Kavli Trust Programme on Health Research

Now Funding Agencies will be at your Fingertips

Deadline: 28 February 2018

The Kavli Trust is seeking proposals for its Health Research Programme that will be awarding a total of NOK 25 M to collaborative research projects addressing selected evidence gaps in child and adolescent mental health.

Mental health problems in children and adolescents make up a considerable part of today’s global disease burden but funding for research addressing these problems is sparse compared to most somatic illnesses. For a variety of reasons a significant part of today’s health research is wasted and the Kavli Trust is committed to limiting research waste by anchoring research funding in established and prioritized evidence gaps.

The Evidence Gaps

The evidence gaps were selected in three steps

  • The Kavli Trust Strategic Scientific Committee identified evidence gaps by searching for systematic reviews in selected databases
  • The Kavli Trust User Panel provided their prioritization of the evidence gaps
  • The Kavli Trust Board decide on how many of the top ranked evidence gaps to include in the call.

The 11 Evidence Gaps

What is the effect:

  • and the cost effectiveness of digital health interventions for children and adolescents with mental health problems?
  • of feedback-informed measures on treatment effectiveness in children and adolescents?
  • of interventions for refugee and asylum seeking children?
  • of parenting programme interventions targeting mental health in adolescents in diverse ethnocultural communities?
  • of school-based, resilience-focused interventions on mental health problems in children and adolescents?
  • of school based interventions for preventing self harm and suicide attempts?
  • of group cognitive behavioral therapy interventions in adolescents with depression?
  • of psychological therapy versus antidepressants or combinations of the two treatments?
  • of interventions for children who have experienced violence in close relationships?
  • of psychosocial interventions for school refusal?
  • of school-based prevention programs for depression and/or anxiety in children and adolescents?
