The Public Health Research Programme (PHR) is accepting Stage 1 applications to their commissioned workstream for this topic.

In order to apply you will need to carefully review the:

This brief was previously advertised in 2020 and has since been updated. 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. Louise Hayes will be providing support for this commissioned call. If you would like to request support contact PHRADA by email phrada@nihr.ac.uk

Virtual clinics

We will be holding virtual clinics for this call on Wednesday 21 July 2021. The virtual clinic will provide an opportunity for potential applicants to discuss their proposed research with the PHR team, members of our Prioritisation and Funding Committee, and colleagues from PHRADA.

If you would like to attend a virtual clinic please email your name, institution, details of up to two members of your team that would also like to attend, and a one-page summary of your proposed research to phr@nihr.ac.uk, no later than 2 July 2021. The summary should cover the background/need for the research, aims, the intervention to be evaluated, the proposed research design/methodology, the approach for public involvement and plans for dissemination. We encourage applicants to engage with Louise Hayes (louise.hayes@newcastle.ac.uk) from the RDS PHRADA scheme, prior to submitting a one-page summary.

As places are limited, we will then review the submissions and confirm whether you have a place. The intention is for the one-page summary to provide a basis for discussion at the virtual clinic. Please note that there is no guarantee of funding by attending a clinic; the purpose of the virtual clinics is to offer assistance, and advice to potential applicants.

Timescales

Proposals received by 1pm on 30 November 2021, and deemed within remit, will be assessed for their importance to public health by the Prioritisation Committee (PC) in January 2022.

Shortlisted Stage 1 proposals from this round will be considered by the Funding Committee (FC) in February 2022, and assessed for scientific quality, feasibility and value for money. Applicants will be informed of the FC's decisions in late February 2022, 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 June 2022 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.
