Summary on Grant Application Form
The award uses results from research in low and middle income countries and develops these into practical applications (research translation). Three types of research translation are being followed:

- translation of research into products (e.g. producing a tool to diagnose disease);

- translation into practice (e.g. developing teaching resources that museum educators can use);

- translation into policy (working with governments to help them understand disease which need to be prioritised for further research).

The award will fund eight smaller translation projects in health, environment, climate change and water. These projects aim to:

- Work with policy makers in the Horn of Africa on regional priorities for research into zoonotic diseases (diseases spread between humans and animals);

- Develop AI-based and low cost devices for detecting diabetic eye disease (two projects);

- Produce guidance for health workers to deliver community-based sociotherapy for refugees in humanitarian settings;

- Produce guidance to museums on how objects produced by the public about conflict and gender equality can be used in educational activities and commercialised to allow greater visibility;

- Develop a tool to identify biodiversity benefits of tree cover and plan sustainable land use;

- Develop radar monitoring of coastal erosion to reduce the risk of future climate variability or sea rise;

- Develop a low-cost water filtration device.
