We welcome you to join a webinar hosted by NIHR Programme Grants for Applied Research (PGfAR), NIHR Programme Development Grants (PDG) and NIHR Research Design Service (RDS) on the PDG call on Developing Innovative, Inclusive and Diverse Public Partnerships.

Webinar summary

Patient, service user and public involvement and engagement has long been a key part of NIHR's mission. Providing funding for partnership working at the start of the research process, at pre-application and pre-award stage, so that long-term relationships can be built and embedded is now part of the NIHR Improvement Plan for patient and public involvement, engagement and participation in health and care research

The NIHR Programme Development Grants call for Developing Innovative, Inclusive and Diverse Public Partnerships plans to build on this commitment through a new annual funding call to encourage inclusive and/or new ways of partnership working between community and charity groups and researchers in health and social care. Community groups, charities and faith organisations will be encouraged to partner with researchers to co-develop proposals for meaningful projects with a direct impact on them and their constituents. Researchers will then help them turn these ideas into pragmatic proposals.

This half-day event for potential applicants will cover the expectations and requirements for this funding opportunity. It will also provide background information on how to complete the application form, and the support available through the Research Design Service. Whilst the event is not intended as a forum for detailed discussion, participants will have an opportunity to put questions to speakers.
