The Singapore Population Health Improvement Centre (SPHERiC) seed funding grants under the National Medical Research Council (NMRC) Centre Grant aims to support the development of population health research capabilities in Singapore. This grant is designed to support small exploratory studies that may provide preliminary data to potentially vie for bigger grants on a national level.
Applicants are strongly encouraged to engage one of the SPHERiC Cores, i.e. Population Health Analytics Core, Health Systems and Models of Care Core, and Implementation Science Core prior to their grant submission.
The duration of each of the awarded seed funding project would be for up to 2 years and funding period should not exceed the end date of the main Centre Grant (31 July 2022).
The funding cap for each proposal will be up to S$50,000 per project.
Successful awardees are strongly encouraged to disseminate the findings of their research projects through publications (hardcopy or electronic) in professional journals, presentations at scientific meetings/conferences and/or conducting training.
