Application form

Applications for 2022 Soulsby Fellowships will be accepted between 1st November 2021 and midnight (GMT) 31st January 2022. Whilst the Trustees wish to encourage a diversity of applications related to One Health, awards are primarily aimed at early career researchers or those providing training in One Health.

Applicants should note that the Board has adopted the following One Health definition developed by the OHHLEP and adopted widely including by the One Health tripartite (WHO, FAO and OIE):

“One Health is an integrated, unifying approach that aims to sustainably balance and optimise the health of people, animals and ecosystems.

It recognises the health of humans, domestic and wild animals, plants, and the wider environment (including ecosystems) are closely linked and inter-dependent.

The approach mobilises multiple sectors, disciplines and communities at varying levels of society to work together to foster well-being and tackle threats to health and ecosystems, while addressing the collective need for clean water, energy and air, safe and nutritious food, taking action on climate change, and contributing to sustainable development.”

For the purposes of this funding opportunity, successful project proposals are likely to integrate knowledge of human health, animal health and ecosystem health, and to focus attention on the importance of these inter-connections. In addition to increasing understanding of zoonoses and emerging infections at the human/animal interface, the Foundation welcomes applications which consider wider issues such as socio-economic aspects and environmental impacts of One Health interventions.
