Organisations from around the world are working to advance the practice of health-related research and research funding, in order to increase the value of health-related research

The Ensuring Value in Research (EViR) Funders’ Collaboration and Development Forum started in 2017, with meetings in London, Den Haag and Washington DC.

Making a bigger difference with health-related research

Organisations that fund health-related research or set funding policy have a responsibility not only to advance knowledge but also the practices of health-related research. Health research funders play an important role in:

  • setting research agendas,
  • selecting which studies to fund,
  • ensuring the quality of the research conducted and disseminated.

Benefits of membership include access to this community, resources and expertise developed, as well as active participation in and influence on the future priorities and direction of the Forum.

Ensuring value in health-related research

The Ensuring Value in Research (EViR) Funders’ Forum developed in June 2017 a Consensus Statement and Guiding Principles to reduce the loss of any research because of it asks the wrong questions, lacks robust research design, is not published or reports are not usable or accessible.

Together, we have agreed on some Guiding Principles to help funders increase the value of health-related research
