Research for Patient Benefit Programme - invitation for applicationsUse SHIFT+ENTER to open the menu (new window).
The NIHR Research for Patient Benefit (RfPB) programme invites research proposals which are related to the day-to-day practice of health service staff and is concerned with having an impact on the health or well-being of patients and users of the NHS. As a responsive rather than a commissioning programme, RfPB does not seek to name specific topic areas and welcomes applications on a wide range of issues and aims to fund high quality research that will be directed at achieving benefit for users of the NHS in England. The programme supports applications which are regionally derived and applications which have emerged from interaction with patients and the public, which relate to patient and service user experience, and which have been drawn up in association with a relevant group of service users.

Please note, in addition to usual commissioning arrangements, researchers can apply to the Long-term Conditions in Children and Young People Call through this competition.

The closing date for applications is 21 May 2014 at 13:00.

Programme Grants for Applied Research - invitation for applicationsUse SHIFT+ENTER to open the menu (new window).
The NIHR Programme Grants for Applied Research programme invites Stage 1 research proposals to develop individual research programmes, in response to the NIHR's themed call on Long-term Conditions in Children and Young People. Research funded through a Programme Grant typically consists of an interrelated group of high quality projects focused on a coherent theme and hence require multidisciplinary approaches, including clinical, health economics, statistics, qualitative and behavioural sciences, to ensure that research objectives can be met. The amount awarded and the length of the funding period will depend on the nature of the proposed work, in particular whether or not the proposal includes a substantial powered trial.

The closing date for applications is 21 May 2014 at 13:00.
