The Public Health Research Programme are accepting stage 1 applications to their researcher-led workstream. The programme recognises the importance of the research priorities identified by the James Lind Alliance (JLA) Priority Setting Partnerships (PSP) and are interested in receiving high-quality applications which address them.

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

Applications 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 applications 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 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 applications until a later date. 'Non-Competitive' means that an application is not of a sufficiently high standard to be taken forward for further assessment in comparison with other applications 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.
