Programme Development Grants - Competition 20

Application dates: 28 September 2017 to 22 November 2017

Applications are invited for Programme Development Grant funding. Programme Development Grants are designed to increase the rate and number of successful applications for a full Programme Grant by supporting the completion of the necessary preparatory work to suitably position the research team to submit a competitive Programme Grant application. Individual awards are for a maximum of £100k over a period of six to eighteen months. The amount of funding awarded, however, is determined by the scale and nature of the research activity to be conducted.

New application forms and guidance

In line with NIHR's launch of a streamlined application process for researchers applying for funding, from Competition 20 onwards PGfAR will be using NIHR's revised forms. In view of these changes, applicants are encouraged to read the new guidance for Competition 20.

The submission deadline for applications is 1pm on 22 November 2017.
