The Health Research Board has launched the Impact Awards for 2021. The award will recognise a researcher or health professional working in any health-related discipline who at any time during their career, has made, or is making, an outstanding contribution to research that has had a significant impact on people’s health or on health policy or practice.
Research impact has been defined as ‘an identifiable benefit or positive influence on society, public policy, quality of life and/or the economy’.
This award will help increase recognition of the value of integrating health research into practice and policy to create a lasting impact on people’s health. It should also provide an opportunity to showcase Ireland’s position as a leader in health research internationally.
Applications are now open until 25th September 2020.
Full details of the award and application process can be found on the HRB website.
