Kavli Trust will be allocating new mental health research grants in 2024, and invites patients, carers and mental health professionals to give their opinion into where this funding should be prioritised.
“By completing the survey you will impact the decision on how the Kavli Trust research grants will be spent,” says Programme Manager in The Kavli Trust Programme on Health Research, Jan-Ole Hesselberg.
You participate by filling out a simple digital survey by December 4.
How to participate:
- Find the survey here: What research should Kavli Trust Fund?
- In the survey you will be asked to rank identified evidence gaps according to what you think is the most important.
- A list of 39 evidence gaps are presented in the survey.
- From these, each participant can select eight of their preferred areas of research.
- You will also be asked to give your age and user group (patient, carer or health professional)
Deadline for submission: 4th December 2023
Important user involvement
The evidence gaps have been identified by experts in the field of child and adolescent mental health. The next step is to find which of these evidence gaps that will be prioritised in the call for proposals.
Input from the user groups will form the foundation for which evidence gaps are to be included in the call for proposals for 2024, which will be announced in December this year.
“We want the research to be relevant to the society and the results to benefit the different user groups. Therefore, we hope that both patients, their relatives and health professionals will contribute with their knowledge and experience, and provide input regarding which evidence gaps funding from the Kavli Trust will contribute to close,” Hesselberg says.
Allocating £16 million
Kavli Trust is a foundation that owns the entire Kavli Group and distributes all profits to good causes. Between 2017 and 2025 Kavli Trust aims to allocate a total of up to 215 million Norwegian kroner (about GBP 16 million) for research projects within the field of child and adolescent mental health through The Kavli Trust’s Programme on Health Research.
Kavli Trust wants to help reduce research waste, and to ensure that research is useful and valuable for patients, carers and society. The Kavli Trust Programme on Health Research is therefore developed to provide new knowledge on specific evidence gaps in child and adolescent mental health.

“In this program, we provide an opportunity for direct and specific user involvement. We believe that this increases the relevance of the research, and hope that the different user groups will embrace this opportunity to influence the decisions,” says Senior Advisor in The Kavli Trust Programme on Health Research, Ida Svege.
