The Public Health Research Programme (PHR) accepting stage 1 applications to their commissioned workstream for this topic.
In order to apply you will need to carefully review the:
Public Health Research Applications and Design Advice (PHRADA) is provided by the NIHR RDS across England to support all applicants developing applications to this NIHR Public Health Research (PHR) Programme commissioned call. Professor Gerry Richardson will be providing support for this commissioned call. If you would like to request support contact PHRADA by email firstname.lastname@example.org or via their website.
A webinar was held on 15 December for this call and 20/120 Food taxes and subsidies, 20/121 Indoor air quality, and 20/122 Multi-agency approaches to tackling illicit tobacco. If you did not sign up but would still like to see the webinar and slides, please email email@example.com.
For this call only, the webinar will be followed by virtual clinics on Wednesday 27 January 2021. The virtual clinic will provide an opportunity for potential applicants to discuss their proposed research with the PHR team, members of our Funding Committee, and colleagues from the NIHR Research Design Service, and College of Policing.
Proposals received by 1pm on 30 March 2021, and deemed within remit, will be assessed for their importance to public health by the Prioritisation Committee (PC) in May 2021.
Shortlisted Stage 1 proposals from this round will be considered by the Funding Committee (FC) in June 2021, and assessed for scientific quality, feasibility and value for money. Applicants will be informed of the FC's decisions in late June 2021, and successful applicants will be invited to submit a Stage 2 application. Applicants have eight weeks to complete and submit a Stage 2 application for it to be considered at the October 2021 Funding Committee.
Please note: If a very high response is received, some stage 1 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 stage 1 applications until a later date. 'Non-Competitive' means that a proposal is not of a sufficiently high standard to be taken forward for further assessment in comparison with other proposals 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.
All primary research projects are expected to establish a programme appointed Study/Trial Steering Committee and it is important that you read the TSC/SSC Guidance before completing your application. Costs incurred by this committee should be included in the budget as appropriate.
