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 commissioned call is being supported by Public Health Research Applications and Design Advice (PHRADA), which is provided by the NIHR Research Design Service (RDS) across England. If you would like to request support for this call, please contact PHRADA by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Proposals received by 1pm on 5 April 2022, and deemed within remit, will be assessed for their importance to public health by the Prioritisation Committee (PC) in May 2022.
Shortlisted Stage 1 proposals from this round will be considered by the Funding Committee (FC) in June 2022, and assessed for scientific quality, feasibility and value for money. Applicants will be informed of the FC's decisions in late June 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 October 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.
