Springboard – Health of the Public 2040 offers funding of up to £50,000 over two years and a bespoke package of career support to researchers at the start of their first independent post. Like the original Springboard scheme, these are grants for researchers in their first independent post, designed to help them in their transition to independence.

Medical research traditionally focuses to prevent, treat and cure disease from a biological perspective, and does not address, for example, the social, behavioural, political and cultural issues that contribute to health inequalities. The new grants are designed to address this gap in research.
