The Kavli Trust has launched its 2017 call for proposals. The Trust will fund research projects addressing selected evidence gaps in child and adolescent mental health.

These evidence gaps have been identified after much work with experts and stakeholders, and have resulted in the following ten questions.

  1. What is the effect of feedback outcome measures on treatment effectiveness?
  2. What is the effect of group interventions for children who experience family disruption?
  3. What is the effect of internet-based interventions for children, youth, and young adults with anxiety and/or depression?
  4. What is the effect of interventions for children who have experienced violence in close relationships?
  5. What is the effect of interventions for refugee and asylum seeking children?
  6. What is the effect of psychological therapy versus antidepressants or combinations of the two treatments?
  7. What is the effect of psychosocial interventions for school refusal?
  8. What is the effect of psychotherapeutic treatment of internalizing and externalizing problems?
  9. What is the effect of school based interventions for preventing self harm and suicide attempts?
  10. What is the effect of violence and child maltreatment prevention programs for parents?

We believe these areas will be of interest across various ARU departments and faculties, and encourage you to consult within your networks and work out how you could approach this challenge. Projects will be funded between 3 million Norwegian Krone (around £270,000) and 12.5 million Norwegian Krone (around £1.1 million), and would therefore fund a wide range of feasible projects.

There are various, strict, criteria for eligibility, so we recommend you refer to the call page before starting a bid, and don't forget to talk to RIDO!
