Invitation to suggest research gaps within child and adolescent mental health

The Kavli Trust Programme on Health Research invites patients, family caregivers, health personnel, researchers and others to suggest research gaps within the field of child and adolescent mental health.

A significant part of today’s health research is wasted and the Kavli Trust is committed to limiting research waste by anchoring research funding in established and prioritized evidence gaps (as documented in updated systematic reviews).

Hence, the Kavli Trust Programme on Health Research devotes considerable effort into searching for and identifying research gaps within the underfinanced research field of child and adolescent mental health.

Aa a supplement to the comprehensive work conducted by our scientific strategic committee, we invite patients, family care givers, health personnel, researchers and others to suggest research gaps within this field. The suggested research gaps must be formulated as research questions, and will be considered for inclusion in the upcoming 2019 Call.


It is a requirement that the suggested research questions…
..are not part of the previous 2017 and 2018 calls
..address children and adolescents (9 to 18 years) mental health
..are evidence gaps, preferably documented by a systematic review

Be as specific as possible when formulating the research question.

Please register your suggested research question here before September 17th 2018.

The 2019 call for abstracts will be announced in December 2018 and opens in January 2019.
