Management Information System (MIS)

The Management Information System (MIS) is an integrated way for applicants, reviewers, and panel and board members to interact with the EME, HS&DR, HTA, PHR and SR Programmes. The MIS is designed to enable those programmes to target, fund, plan and co-ordinate research more effectively, contributing to the achievement of NIHR objectives.

Who uses the MIS?

Research applicants

Research applicants must use the MIS to submit their application for funding using the new NIHR Standard Application Form.  

The Standard Application Form is different to the form you may have used for previous applications, so please familiarise yourself with it before starting your application. An example is available on the funding pages and guidance notes on completing the form are available for each call. A guide on using the MIS for co-applicants (pdf, 771.48 KB) and a guide on using the MIS for supporting roles (pdf, 644.48 KB) are available.

External reviewers

External reviewers will use the MIS to accept or decline invitations to review research proposals and to provide us with their reviews. A guide for reviewers (pdf, 801.94 KB) on using the MIS is available.

Chief investigators

Chief investigators of funded projects now use the MIS to submit their project progress reports, output notifications, final reports and protocol change requests. A guide for Chief Investigators (pdf, 530.56 KB) on using the MIS is available.

Board and Panel members

 Board and Panel members with the EME, HS&DR, HTA, PHR and SR Programmes will use the MIS to download papers for their meetings. A guide for Board Members (pdf, 628.52 KB) on using the MIS is available.
