Grants of up to $15,000 to USA and territories individuals, consumer/patient groups, clinicians, researchers, collaboratives, and USA-based foreign organizations to generate research ideas for a future research project to benefit the USA healthcare system. January 18 is the deadline to submit a mandatory LOI.
Eligible proposals can include capacity building, community engagement, formation of partnerships, and other preparations to lay the groundwork for a later research proposal. The activities taking place might include workshops, roundtables, conferences, meetings, and other information-sharing tasks.
The purpose of the Pipeline to Proposal Awards Initiative is to cultivate the development of proposals with sound scientific rigor and robust patient engagement. PCORI expects that Pipeline to Proposal projects will help individuals form new collaborations that can produce meaningful research proposals.
The emphasis is to actively integrate patients, caregivers, clinicians, and other healthcare stakeholders as members of the patient-centered outcomes research/comparative effectiveness research (PCOR/CER) process.
Tier I – Pre-Engagement/Community Projects:
• Tier I awards fund the building of a partnership and expansion of skills necessary to develop a patient-centered comparative effectiveness research (CER) project. The Tier I phase will generate a list of comparative effectiveness research (CER) ideas that address the health issue of interest to those in the partnership.
• Individuals or groups can receive this funding—no university, researcher, or incorporated entity is required in order to apply.
• PCORI encourages those who are not usual candidates for research funding to apply for Tier I. This program is intended to support those individuals and groups with critically important ideas who may not have other opportunities for funding. In order to qualify for Tier I funding, you must have demonstrated success in a past community-building project. The demonstrated success doesn’t have to have been health-related. You need to explain how you engaged the community and formed partnerships to achieve your goal.
• Tier I awards are not research awards; the purpose of this funding is to build capacity and engage individual patients, stakeholders, researchers, and others who care about a particular health topic that can lead to a CER question—even if that question cannot yet be articulated.
• Building relationships and forming collaborative partnerships among patients, caregivers, researchers, and other stakeholders are critical components of Tier I awards.
While Pipeline to Proposal Awards do not fund research, successful awardees should ensure that their area of focus—the idea that they will eventually build a PCOR proposal around—does not fall outside of PCORI’s research funding programs.
- Cost effectiveness
- Efficacy (Studies that ask “Does this work?” rather than “Which of these options works better?”)
- Causes of disease or descriptive studies
- Social determinants of health
- Development of clinical practice guidelines
