Research grant development funding call for nurses, midwives, AHPs and Healthcare Scientists

UHBW is pleased to announce that it is making NIHR Research Capability Funding available to support nurses, midwives, AHPs and Healthcare Scientists to develop outline research proposals. These would then lead on to larger research funding proposals or research fellowship applications to a local (for example the UHBW and Above and Beyond Research Funding Committee, which award small grants of up to £25,000) or to a national funder. Funding would be provided for up to one day a week for a maximum of 6 months (or equivalent) and could be used to backfill time or for additional hours.

The development of the outline research proposal and the subsequent submission of a larger grant will require the support of your line manager, and an experienced research mentor.

For application forms and further information please contact the research grants team in Research and Innovation:  

David Telling Charitable Trust

The David Telling Charitable Trust announce that we will not be accepting new applications forthwith. All existing grant funding decisions will be honoured.  Further details.
