The RBaby-INSPIRE Award for Advancing Pediatric Emergency Medical Care

INSPIRE is excited to announce a broad funding opportunity for investigators in simulation-based research for pediatric emergencies.


The International Network for Simulation-based Pediatric Innovation, Research and Education (INSPIRE) was established in 2011 from a group of simulation-based pediatric researchers from a variety of disciplines looking to improve collaboration, mentorship, and productivity. Our mission is to catalyze innovative global simulation-based collaborative scholarship to improve pediatric health.

RBaby is the first and only foundation uniquely focused on saving babies’ and children’s lives through improving pediatric emergency care, training, research, treatment, equipment, and education. RBaby’s mission is to ensure that babies and children receive the highest quality emergency healthcare.

INSPIRE is seeking studies that aim to promote saving or improving pediatric lives through impactful simulation-based research, discovery, or implementation projects relevant to pediatric emergency medicine.


  1. INSPIRE Research Award: One proposal will be funded for a one-year duration with a maximum budget of $6000 USD total.
  2. These projects must be simulation-based and have strong potential for a positive impact on pediatric emergency medicine.
  3. Award proposals will be due on April 15, 2024, by 11:59pm ET.
