NIHR Regional Research Delivery Networks: Host Organisation Expressions of Interest


From April 2024, the new NIHR Research Delivery Network will take forward and extend the work of the current NIHR Clinical Research Network.

The whole of England will be supported through 12 NIHR Regional Research Delivery Networks (RRDNs). These will work with the national Coordinating Centre to provide a joint RDN leadership function so that the NIHR RDN as a whole functions as a single organisation with a shared vision and purpose across England.
