Joint call – 2024
Funding news

Purpose

The purpose of this call is to promote multi-perspective research on how mobility and health are interlinked, influencing the general health, various health determinants and the well-being of local and mobile populations, and how the effects of mobility could be addressed in a sustainable way. The call is initiated jointly by the three independent private foundations Wellcome (UK), the Volkswagen Foundation (Germany) and Novo Nordisk Foundation (Denmark).

 

The applicants are not limited to, but could use the following sub-themes as inspiration to develop high-impact research projects:

  • Projects to inform research priorities, policies and interventions aimed at addressing access to prevention, diagnostics, and challenges of continued care for non-communicable diseases, including mental health and infectious disease co-morbidities, among migrants for work, persons displaced due to conflict, disasters or climate change.
  • Understand, in a One Health perspective, the role of mobility and international trade of goods, live animals and agricultural products for public health recognizing the interconnection between people, animals, plants, and their shared environment as well as the ethical and systemic components and adaptation strategies.

 

Projects are encouraged to understand, develop and assess novel methods and approaches across different disciplines to benefit research into mobility including, for example, ethical aspects, data quality, cost, feasibility and participatory opportunities.
