Research-practice grants aim to advance science and its application by (1) accelerating knowledge transfer from researchers to practitioners, thereby facilitating implementation; and/or (2) encouraging the use of practitioners’ knowledge and lessons learned from experience to inform research. Proposed projects must be hypothesis-driven and seek to improve science and practice by bringing together researchers, practitioners, or other relevant perspectives.
