Ida Research Committee Accepting Proposals for Research Grants

By Amanda Farah Cox

The Ida Institute is excited to announce that our Research Committee is accepting proposals for projects seeking funding. By providing funding for research into the effects of person-centered tools and methodologies, we hope to stimulate interest and support for the development of evidence in this important area of hearing rehabilitation.

Funding will be awarded to projects that develop evidence related to Ida Institute initiatives and tools and aim to demonstrate the effect of person-centered care in hearing rehabilitation. We are particularly interested in projects related to the deployment of Ida’s Telecare Platform and Tinnitus counselling tools.

The Research Committee will review the applications and select three projects, with awardees receiving up to $10,000 USD. The committee members are Prof. Louise Hickson, committee chair, Dr. Joseph Montano, Dr. Melanie Ferguson, Dr. Elisabet Sundewall Thoren, and Prof. Sophia Kramer.

Recipients of the grant agree to begin their research by September 1, 2017, and submit results by September 1, 2018.

All applications are due by March 6, 2017. For more information and to download the application, visit our Research Committee page.
