The Radboud Institute for Health Sciences honors a foreign researcher or teacher with the 'Richard Grol Visiting Scientist Award'. This award is named after the founder of the Institute (former NCEBP, Nijmegen Centre for Evidence Based Practice) who had the vision to connect the population sciences of the Radboud university medical center in a strong methodology-oriented research institute. The Award aims at the initiation of new collaborations with foreign institutes in the field of Health Sciences in order to strengthen the Radboud Institute for Health Sciences through teaching or research. Radboud Institute for Health Sciences' (junior) principal investigators may nominate a candidate from a foreign institution to the management of the Institute. The Award will be granted once a year, and comes in the form of € 4000,-- for travel and accommodation for the awardee for a stay in Nijmegen of approximately 1 month.
In 2016 RIHS has awarded the Richard Grol Visiting Scientist Award to Trish Greenhalgh, Professor of Primary Care Health Sciences at the University of Oxford.
