Developing proposals for the renewed Research for Patient Benefit (RfPB) programme – a support afternoon for applicants

Date and time: 11 February 2016 , 1.30 pm to 4.00 pm
Location: The Liner Hotel, Lord Nelson Street, Liverpool, , L3 5QB

Are you planning to submit a RfPB grant application in March 2016?

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 support afternoon for people applying to the RfPB programme for research funding.

For those planning to submit an RfPB proposal in competition 29, we will provide a facilitated half-day support session for applicants involving one-to-one advice with a range of experts from different methodological backgrounds. 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 session is open to researchers across the North West.
  • There is no charge for the session.
  • It is a requirement that people apply for the session via our application form, as places for research teams are limited to seven.

The session can accommodate a maximum of seven research teams. 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.
