Programme Development Grants - Competition 21

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.

The NIHR 2018 Themed Call is ‘Promotion of good mental health and the prevention or treatment of mental ill health’ across the whole life course. We welcome proposals for clinical and applied health research that evaluate healthcare interventions, health services, social care or public health measures operating at either the individual, or the population level. Issues of particular interest include proposals that utilise new digital health technologies or investigate their effects. This Themed Call will apply to Competition 26 and 27.

For further details, including the Themed Call specification document, please see https://www.nihr.ac.uk/funding-and-support/themed-calls/mental-health.htm.

Please note that PGfAR’s researcher led calls are open to all relevant research areas, and do not just include this Themed Call. If you are responding to this Themed Call, please indicate this in the application form in Section 6, Research Plan, Question 1 ‘What is the problem being addressed?’

The submission deadline for applications is 1pm on 28 March 2018.
