Rapid developments in health care, science, and technology raise exciting possibilities to advance our health and well-being, but also raise complex ethical dilemmas. Strengthening the relationship between bioethics and policy can help decision-makers navigate conflicting points of view and find the best way forward.
To bridge the gap between bioethics research findings and policymaking, The Greenwall Foundation launched a grant initiative in 2022, Bridging Bioethics Research & Policymaking. Through this initiative, the Foundation funds projects that develop novel mechanisms – or seek to adapt or improve existing mechanisms – that bring bioethics to the table as policy is made.
This initiative does not fund bioethics research but, rather, supports bioethics researchers, policymakers, and others to take the next step and bridge the divide between research results and policymaking.
