Have you got a great idea that you’d like to get £30,000 of funding for?

Q Exchange, Q’s £600,000 funding programme, is now open for applicants to submit their ideas. 

Q Exchange offers Q members the chance to develop project ideas and submit bids for up to £30,000 of funding.

This stage of the process is called idea generation.

Q Exchange members can upload ideas and develop them with the help of the Q community through a collaborative online process.

This year Q is seeking project ideas on two themes:

  1. Building improvement capability across boundaries
  2. Understanding alternatives to traditional outpatient appointments

Up to 30 projects will be shortlisted and will go forward to the Q community vote where Q members vote on which projects receive funding. The winners will be announced at the UK-wide Q community event in November.

David Elder, ihub’s Networks Advisor said:

Applying to Q Exchange really could make the difference to QI projects across Scotland and with the closing date just around the corner I’d recommend people submit their ideas as soon as possible.”

The Q Exchange website has all the material applicants need from top tips to an online forum where you can share ideas.

This stage of the process closes on Monday 1 July 2019 at 12pm. 

The Q Exchange website has more information for all applicants.

Healthcare Improvement Scotland is the lead partner for Q in Scotland.
