• Developing proposals for Research for Patient Benefit (RfPB) - A support programme for applicants
    14 May 2014, 11th June 2014 and 9th July 2014, Liverpool

    Are you planning to submit a RfPB grant application in September 2014?

    Do you want advice from experts on topics such as research methods, patient and public involvement and costings?

    RDS NW is providing a programme to support people applying to the RfPB programme for research funding.

    For those planning to submit  an RfPB proposal in the 25th funding round (final submission deadline to be confirmed) we will provide a facilitated support programme for applicants involving three half-day meetings, individual advice, mutual feedback and referral to experts where needed. The aim is to maximise your chances of success in securing RfPB funding and to ensure your project is robust, well designed and properly supported.

    A series of three meetings.  Participants are expected to attend all three.

    Please note the deadline for applications has now been extended to 14 April 2014.

    This seminar is one of a series organised by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Research Design Service for the North West (RDS NW) to highlight national funding opportunities for applied health and social care research. We aim to give researchers a better understanding of funding priorities, application processes and future plans and an opportunity for dialogue with panel members and successful grant holders.
