  • Research for Patient Benefit - a support programme for applicants
    27 Jan 2015 - Leyland

    Are you planning to submit a RfPB grant application in May 2015?
    Do you want advice from experts on topics such as research methods, patient and public involvement and costings?

    Research Design Service North West (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 27th 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.

    • The programme is open to staff in all universities and NHS organisations across the North West.
    • There is no charge for the programme.
    • It is a requirement that participants commit to taking part in all three meetings and to working on their RfPB grant proposal between meetings.

    There will only be 10 places available on the programme. If it is oversubscribed we will prioritise those most likely to benefit from the support it provides. Others will be encouraged to access individual RDS NW support.
