Assessment dates

Applications received by 1pm on the 21 November 2017, and deemed within remit, will be assessed for their importance to public health by the Programme Advisory Board (PAB) in January 2018.

Shortlisted applications from this round will be considered by the Research Funding Board (RFB) in February 2018, and assessed for scientific quality, feasibility and value for money. Applicants will be informed of the RFB's decisions in March 2018.

Please note: If a very high response is received, some applications may not be taken forward for further assessment if they are deemed to be non-competitive and/or it may be necessary to defer some applications until a later date. 'Non-Competitive' means that an application is not of a sufficiently high standard to be taken forward for further assessment in comparison with other applications received and funded by the PHR Programme because it has little or no realistic prospect of funding. This may be because of scientific quality, cost, scale/duration, or the makeup of the project team.
