NIHR Research Capability Funding (RCF) is a research funding stream made available by the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) to help research-active NHS organisations maintain and develop research capacity. Bath R&D have launched a competition for funds to free up time to prepare an NIHR Grant Application, or for Pump Priming / Pilot work to generate preliminary data to support an NIHR Grant Application.
This scheme can be used to:
- Fund time to prepare one or more NIHR research grant applications in the area of Primary Care; and/or
- Fund the generation of preliminary or underpinning data to support an NIHR application in the area of Primary or Community Care
The Scheme will not fund studies which will not directly generate data for NIHR grant applications, and applications should clearly illustrate the need for the research and its potential impact for the NHS.
Please contact Lisa Austin: L.Austin@Bath.ac.uk for an application form.
Competition closes 26th Sept 2014
