Guidance for Policy Relevant Research applications

PRP stage 1 template application form

The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Policy Research Programme (PRP) invites applications for a number of research projects to further develop current NIHR investments within the context of policy making.

This innovative call has the specific objective of establishing and building fruitful connections between NIHR funded research and current and emerging policy priorities.

Between £50k-£150k will be made available to existing NIHR investigators to deliver small scale projects, lasting between 6-12 months, with clear policy relevance and building on existing NIHR funded work.
