Background

UKRI-NHMRC Built Environment and Prevention Research Scheme will support Australian participation and collaboration in world-leading prevention research seeking to address the shared burden of non-communicable diseases influenced by the built environment. 

The collaborative research projects will aim to generate evidence that can be translated into actionable, sustainable and cost-effective ways of preventing NCDs, to improve population health and reduce health inequalities in the UK and Australia.

Research grants under this call can be up to three years in duration and will start in April 2020.

Eligible Topics

The areas listed below are given as examples of aspects of the built environment in which multi-disciplinary research proposals are welcomed:

  • urban planning and regeneration
  • city design, including increasing conditions that promote health such as ‘active travel’ and access to green space
  • housing
  • transportation systems
  • air quality, both indoor and outdoor, and noise 
  • the indoor environment
  • neighbourhood diversity, including social regeneration and social cohesion, and access to health services
  • the relationship between the built environment, extreme weather events, and their impact on health

Proposals need not be restricted to the examples cited as applications across the breadth the built environment are encouraged.
