NHS net zero

£30m net zero funding launches

The National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) has partnered with UK Research and Innovation to roll out a new £30m funding call to drive the health sector’s net zero agenda.

The joint programme will deliver up to £6m per annum over five years to a range of UK research organisations.

Each research hub will look to address at least one roadblock in the journey to net zero; NIHR highlights the desire to understand the human health implications of current policies and uncover new interventions.

Dr Sophia Lentzos, who was given NIHR’s first ever head of sustainability role late last year, said: “This call will allow us to better understand the impact of new interventions across sectors on health and will be vital to ensuring a healthy population in the future.”

She continued: “This call also acknowledges the impact of healthcare on the environment and the urgent need to understand the changing nature of care.”
