NIHR Research for Patient Benefit (RfPB) social care funding roadshow events

Events being run during September and October 2019 around the country – 8 October 2019 in Manchester.

The NIHR will be investing in future social care research with annual funding calls via the Research for Patient Benefit (RfPB) programme.  The next call is planned to launch in September and will follow a similar format to the first call, however to give it a clearer social care identity it will be launched as Research for Social Care (RfSC). 

The RfSC call will have a budget of £3 million.  A draft specification document for the call is available, but details will be confirmed once launched in September.

The Research Design Service (RDS) is running regional events which will offer an opportunity to gain a greater understanding of RfSC funding. Attendance at these events is FREE and refreshments will be provided.

Researchers currently developing, or considering developing, a proposal for submission to RfSC for funding are invited to take advantage of a one-to-one appointment to discuss their proposed research idea or study.

The Research Design Service North West will be hosting one of the events in Manchester on 8 October. Register for the event in Manchester here.
