Step 4 - Sign a funding contract

Shaking hands icon

You are now part of our Faculty and NIHR support continues after the funding award is made. You can view copies of the contracts we use on our contracts and intellectual property page. Please also take the time to review the managing my study section for information on your future commitments and the support we offer you in delivering them.

  • Keep in touch with your NIHR programme funding team so that you can remain on track, with advice and support on study start-up and monitoring of progress throughout the life of the study.
  • Apply our guidance on how to acknowledge your NIHR funding in project outputs.
  • We will want to help you ensure that your research findings are disseminated widely and that the intellectual property generated from NIHR funding is secured within an appropriate legal, contractual environment to facilitate benefit realisation for patients.
