Funding Opportunity: Value of Innovation to Implementation Program

This funding mechanism provides a new opportunity and resources to support innovative, collaborative research projects that will identify, develop, test, evaluate and/or refine strategies to disseminate and implement evidence-based practices (e.g. quality improvement programs, diagnostic; treatment and disease management interventions; behavioral interventions; prevention, and early detection) into clinical practice and community settings. The goal of VI2P is to foster trans-disciplinary collaboration among scientists and practitioners to form project teams. In addition, VI2P aims to support studies to advance dissemination and implementation research methods and measures, and studies of de-implementation of clinical or community practices that are wasteful or not evidence-based but widely adopted.

Applications will be open to all Faculty across the University inclusive of all Colleges and Centers. Investigators at all stages of career development are eligible to apply. 

A training workshop has been provided to those interested applicants who plan to serve as principal investigator or co-principal investigator.  The presentation slides can be viewed here. Additional dissemination and implementation research resources can be accessed below.
