FIP Hospital Pharmacy Section (HPS) Grants

Applications for the 2024 FIP Hospital Pharmacy Section Research Grant are yet to be opened

The FIP Hospital Pharmacy Section (HPS) and FIP Foundation are thrilled to announce the establishment of a groundbreaking research grant partnership between the FIP Hospital Pharmacy Section (HPS) and the FIP Foundation to provide two grants of €3000 each for Fall 2023. This grant aims to foster innovative research in the field of hospital pharmacy and support talented researchers in their endeavors. These grants are intended to promote research projects that align with our mission to improve and support hospital pharmacy practices, with a focus on policies and practices that directly impact hospital pharmacists. We invite eligible applicants to participate in this exciting opportunity and contribute to the advancement of hospital pharmacy practice and patient care.

Research Focus Areas

While we welcome projects from all areas of hospital pharmacy practice, special consideration will be given to high-quality research that aligns with the implementation of the revised Basel Statements.  In particular, research focusing on seamless care, medication safety or interprofessional collaboration will be given priority.


Principal investigators (PI) must be active members of the FIP Hospital Pharmacy Section. Please note that grants will be awarded to organizations and not individuals. While institutions may have their own criteria for grant eligibility, graduate students can be listed as Co-Principal Investigators on the application. 


For this grant, overhead costs are not permitted. If the total cost of the project exceeds the requested amount from the FIP Hospital Pharmacy Section, a comprehensive financial plan must be included, highlighting any matching financial contributions secured or anticipated. Letters of support from other funders indicating their willingness to provide funds and the amount of support should be included when possible.
