Research Capability Funding (RCF) is provided by the National
Institute for Health Research (NIHR) to buy out staff time to
enable them to prepare NIHR research grant applications, and/or to
generate preliminary or underpinning data to support an NIHR
application; a "pump-priming" grant.
Above and Beyond
allocate funds for grants to conduct pilot feasibility or
"Pump-priming" studies in UH Bristol that will lead to a larger
grant application to a funding body (other than NIHR).
Applications for Above and Beyond and Research Capability
Funding (RCF) grants of up to £20,000 are reviewed by the UHBristol
Research Funding Committee twice a year.
The Autumn 2016 Call is now open.
The deadline for submission of applications is 09:00,
Tuesday 25 October, 2016.
