Types of intervention research activities desired under this priority research area include (1) systematic evaluation of the effectiveness of interventions which are ready for implementation as well as evaluations of the effectiveness of interventions which have already been implemented. (2) comparative analyses of the effectiveness of alternate options (e.g. cost effectiveness) and (3) evaluation of interventions in any industry sector with emphasis on agriculture, construction, services (especially health care), and mining. Applications are encouraged which partner with industry, labor, or other academic institutions.
