NIHR: Research for Patient Benefit

Deadline for applications: 27th November 2019

The Research for Patient Benefit Programme supports research that is concerned with the day-to-day practice of health service staff. Research proposals should have a clear trajectory towards benefiting the health or wellbeing of patients and users of the NHS.

The programme is researcher-led and does not specify topics for research.

The funding available for individual projects is up to £350,000 for up to 36 months. Feasibility studies are expected to cost less than £250,000, and proposals that will generate results that might be useful for more downstream investigations are expected to cost less than £150,000.
