NIHR aims to get research started quicker through new Intent to Fund letter

Date: 21 December 2017

The NIHR is pleased to announce that a new Intent to Fund letter will replace the existing versions of award letters currently used to inform applicants to NIHR funding streams of a successful funding decision. The new letter will provide successful applicants and their host organisations with more reassurance and support to get research projects up and running more quickly. It will also ensure consistency in the information applicants receive following a successful funding decision, no matter which funding stream they have applied to.

The NIHR is committed to reducing the time it takes from the development of a research idea to the idea making a difference to patients and the public. This new letter forms part of this commitment by helping to support organisations and successful applicants reduce the delays which can occur between the stages from successful outcome to the research project commencing.  

This new letter will start to be used for funding decisions made from today and will be rolled out across all NIHR programmes over the next few months. Any questions about the new letter should be directed to the usual point of contact for the relevant programme.
