Lifelong Health and Wellbeing: Advanced Notice

Five of the seven Research Councils, together with a clutch of government departments, have issued an advanced notice for the third round of the 'Lifelong Health and Wellbeing' programme. This is intended to fund multidisciplinary research to understand, prepare for and encourage healthy living in later life.
Phase 3 will seek proposals on (but not restricted to):
  • Mental health and wellbeing, including quality of life, preserving cognitive function;
  • Resilience for successful ageing: from cell to society, including life course influences, markers for ageing and processes of ageing;
  • Age-related conditions, including frailty and interventions to promote independence in later life.

They're offering both research grants (up to £10m) and pilot grants (£2.5m for 10 projects).
The call itself is due in early May, so have a look at their website and give some thought as to whether you have the necessary collaborations or projects that would be suitable to LLHW funding. If you need any help with this, don't hesitate to get in touch.
