NIHR Knowledge Mobilisation Research Fellowships - Round 3

Closing date: 14 August 2014 Publish date: 27 May 2014

Knowledge Mobilisation Research Fellowships (KMR Fellowships) are designed to support a balance of innovative knowledge mobilisation and research into the processes and impacts of such innovation. Through innovative practice and systematic study of that practice KMR Fellows should advance knowledge and understanding about research use, influence and impact.

In order to encourage partnership working between the NHS and Higher Education Institutions, applications must be supported by at least two organisations from these different sectors. NHS organisations may be providers or commissioners of NHS health services.

KMR Fellowships are personal awards designed to buy out an individual's salary costs, fund a training and development programme and fund the activities needed to complete an identified knowledge mobilisation research project. Because applications are welcomed from individuals working on either side of the activity gap that this scheme aims to bridge, the specific experiences and competencies expected of the applicant are dependent on their background.

All applicants must ensure that their proposed research project is compatible with the NIHR Remit.

Launch Date: 27 May 2014

Closing Date for Applications: 14 August 2014 at 13:00

Further details, including full eligibility criteria, can be found in the relevant guidance notes for applicants on the KMR Fellowships page available from the link below. Prospective applicants are encouraged to read these guidance notes before contacting NIHR TCC with queries pertaining to the scheme or their application.
