The NIHR Team Science Award aims to bring together individuals with an interest in multiple long term conditions (Multimorbidity) (MLTC-M) research from a variety of disciplines and with a wide range of experiences to tackle complex current and emerging health and care challenges.

The award offers up to £100,000 designed to support inter-disciplinary research teams to collaborate on a future application to other research programmes, expand their research network and develop capacity in the MLTC-M field by:

  • Supporting pilot research
  • Funding training and development for the research team
  • Establish new collaborations

The NIHR Team Science Camp was held in 2023, applicants do not need to have attended the camp, but if you would like to receive a copy of camp learning summary, please get in touch with us via
