The Heart-Lung Foundation’s new 3-year grant (with support from the Norhed Foundation) is an extra investment in lifestyle-related intervention as part of prevention and treatment research into the cardiovascular area. The investment is ongoing for three years with calls in 2020, 2021 and 2022.
The grant is primarily aimed at research on diet and physical activity, and applies to both primary and secondary prevention. The focus is also on lifestyle-oriented measures as part of the treatment of cardiovascular disease. If there is a link between lifestyle factors and chronic lung disease, studies on these patient groups can also be included in the project.
The grant of SEK 2 million per (a total of SEK 6 million over three years) is preferably applied for as a single project grant by networks where at least two research groups are included in the project. The application period is October 19th – November 24th 2020 for research to be carried out starting in 2021.
