On October 10, 2022, #EQIPD will lead a discussion on how to help funders and grant applicants align on research rigor expectations and avoid funding of research of unknown quality.

Objectives of the meeting are to:

  • Review lessons learned from the US and German publicly funded programs that focused directly or indirectly on decision-enabling research (LADDER, GOT-IT, DECIDE)
  • Develop and disseminate a tool that minimizes or avoids the risks associated with funding of research of unknown quality (i.e., where quality expectations have not been sufficiently communicated between funders and grant applicants)

The meeting is hosted by the QUEST Center of the Berlin Institute of Health.
