The purpose of this competition is to support a transdisciplinary research network for scientific collaboration and infrastructure building for innovative home visiting research. The research network will produce meaningful impacts that will significantly extend the evidence-base of home visiting through research that is informed by and reflects the principles of:
2) specificity and precision;
3) rapid-cycle and iterative methods;
4) targeting to identify who benefits most;
5) use of an "active ingredients" approach by identifying the components of interventions that lead to improved outcomes, and;
6) innovation beyond interventions and into systems.
The goal of the Home Visiting R&D Platform is to plan for, develop, and sustain a R&D network of early childhood development and learning researchers and practitioners who will frame, implement, and report on innovative, transdisciplinary research related to precision interventions to improve meaningful outcomes for at-risk families and communities. The R&D platform will accelerate the translation of research into practice, and improve the precision of early childhood interventions. The results will be practice-generated translational evidence that can be used to inform innovation in home visiting, with associated benefits for the early childhood field as a whole.
