Applications are invited for the third round of funding available through the RoSPA/BNFL accident prevention scholarship, which sees winners awarded a £20k research grant.
The scheme provides support for safety-related research that will produce defined, practical and influential outcomes to help save lives and prevent injuries in the UK and around the world. It was established with £500,000 of legacy funding following the winding up of BNFL (British Nuclear Fuels).
Previously funded projects have considered; the scale and impact of child injuries in Nepal; the threat posed by cold water immersion; the effectiveness of a learner-driver coaching programme; the impact of child safety interventions; and the perception of approaching vehicles by older motorists.
Up to three projects are awarded grants annually and applications need to be received by 1 April 2011.
