Got a research idea and not sure how to turn it into a funding application? The Research Design Service (RDS) supports health and social care researchers across England on all aspects of developing and writing a funding application. Find out how the RDS can help with your application.
Please note that this document is to be used as a guide and to assist with completion of the online application form only, for example to see how many characters are accepted in each section and how the printed complete form is laid out. Please do not try to use this as an application form, you must apply using the online form available through the links available when calls are open. You should also refer to the application form guidance notes.
All proposals submitted must fall within the remit/scope of the EME Programme and further information on this can be found on the EME Programme webpage and by clicking on ‘What we fund’.
For further details on aspects such as eligibility, collaboration and team expertise, timescales and funding limits as well as other guidance on applying please review the ‘EME application supporting information’ document linked above alongside the Stage 1 guidance notes.
All primary research projects are expected to establish a programme appointed Study Steering Committee and it is important that you read the Research Governance Guidance before completing your application. Costs incurred by this committee should be included in the budget as appropriate.
