The goal of the programme “From Knowledge to Action II” is promoting the quality of nursing and care by carrying out research, developing and testing innovations, and implementation and guaranteeing of improvements and innovations in daily practice. In order to strengthen the research infrastructure for scientific research into nursing and care, no separate research projects will be renumerated in this programme, only lines of research. A line of research consists of a number of related projects.
The lines of research must contribute to the maintenance, development and further expansion of the nursing and care research infrastructure. In addition, the research line must contribute to the scientific support of nursing and/or care. A line of research must ultimately yield knowledge which is applicable in practice, and which leads to a better quality of care.
The elements mentioned below for the building of a good research infrastructure gives direction to the programme’s ambition. When building a good research infrastructure it is necessary to:
