The Public Health Research (PHR) 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.
The NIHR are looking to receive applications for research studies addressing JLA PSPs' research priorities, rather than to conduct a PSP itself.
In order to apply you will need to carefully review the:
Any changes to these dates will be emailed to all Lead Applicants with an application in progress.
- Stage 1 deadline: 1pm, 4 April 2023
- notification of out of remit/non-competitive decision if unsuccessful: late April 2023
- notification of Stage 1 shortlisting decision: mid/end June 2023
- Stage 2 writing window: mid/end June to mid August 2023
- notification of Stage 2 funding decision: early November 2023
- earliest start date for funded studies: 1 February/1 March 2024
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.
