Application deadline: 1st of September, 2021 at 23.59 p.m.
Proposals for the OUH Research Competition fund are invited with the above application deadline.
"The patient first” is the underlying principle of OUH’s ambition in creating value for our patients. To offer the best treatment, retain and attract the best-qualified staff to the benefit of patients, it is the ambition of OUH to strengthen research at the hospital. As one of several initiatives to reach this objective, OUH has set aside funding for the Research Competition.
The overall ambition with the OUH Research Competition fund is to strengthen how to make use of research/research results at OUH. For each call, the board of managers selects the topics or areas of research interest.
The purpose of the competition fund is to find proof within already existing or new treatment methods or initiatives, ways of delivering treatment services or ways to organise or improve work procedures from a patient and/or working perspective.
The board of directors at OUH has selected the following areas of research in 2021:
When illustrating the research topic the application should be using the mind-set of MTV (Medical technology Assessment/Medicinsk Teknologivurdering).
As a rule, all research disciplines are eligible to apply, including clinical near-patient research, epidemiology research, experimental laboratory research and health-service research. However, they must relate to the above-mentioned research areas.
Applicants must be senior researchers in a combined position between OUH and The University of Southern Denmark. All applications must be approved by the head of the OUH department where the research is being done as well as the head of research at the OUH department.
Each applicant may apply for a maximum amount of DKK 1M. Please note that a possible grant for budgetary purposes will be paid out in thousands (not. e.g. DKK 182.357, but DKK 182.000).
In the budget section (step 3), please state which year a possible grant is needed.
• Year 1 = 2021
• Year 2 = 2022
If a possible grant is to be divided between two years, please indicate number of months for each year.
Notice: We expect that the main part of the grant will be used in 2022.
