Strategic Initiative Awards

Strategic Initiatives focus on specific strategic needs in the health research arena that are not addressed by established HRB schemes or other funders. Many of these initiatives comprise one-off or limited numbers of awards, and many (but not all) are substantial awards financially. 

Currently the HRB funds a number of awards that fall into this category and can be further sub-divided under the headings of Global Health Initiatives, National and International Collaboration, and Capacity building. 


Global Health Initiatives:

Research funding for global health projects

European and Developing Countries Clinical Trials Partnership


National and International Collaboration:

Health Research Centres

Clinical Research Facilities

Autism Genome Project

Genelibrary Ireland planning grant
