We were delighted to announce funded research projects for the Future Stroke Leaders Programme during the third learning session in March. Future Leaders have since received detailed instructions, proposal forms and timelines for the project submission.
The main purpose of the project is to lead transformation of regional and global stroke care. It provides a great possibility for Future Leaders to demonstrate their leadership skills such as relationship building, problem-solving and innovation.
Future Leaders will have an opportunity to develop a group research project within a framework offered by the WSO. All proposed projects should be in line with the WSO Mission, which is to ‘reduce the global burden of stroke through more effective prevention, better treatment and long-term support.’ This year’s Future Leaders Programme theme is “Implementation of Quality Stroke Care” with the following areas of focus:
Projects which involve several Future Leaders representing different countries will be given priority. Only Future Leaders can apply and be co-investigators of the projects.
Completed project proposals, including a budget statement will be evaluated by the Future Leaders Programme Advisory Committee, and successful applicants will be invited to begin work on their projects. Each group will receive a mentor to provide guidance on the research proposals and project implementation.
The duration of each grant is one year and the maximum funding amount per project is USD 20,000.
Completed projects will be presented at the World Stroke Congress in Singapore in 2022.

We are wishing all the best of luck to WSO Future Stroke Leaders in their Projects’ development Journey!
Achieving our vision of a life free from stroke is a task that WSO cannot achieve alone. We are committed to building our partnerships at the global, regional and national level to scale up and deliver improvements in prevention, treatment and support to reduce the burden of stroke.
