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.

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