This scheme is open for applications –
The award provides funding for protected time (2 sessions) to contribute to, conduct and lead clinical research. The aim is to strengthen the research culture in the NHS and to increasing capacity in areas that are either aligned to research excellence either locally or nationally or areas where the potential exists to develop research excellence.
CSO allocates £12.7m per annum to Boards through its NRS Researcher Support budget to meet the time of staff conducting research. If you are currently doing research but you don’t have support for these sessions you should be applying directly to your R&D office for funding under the Researcher Support strand.
Please read the guidance carefully and ensure application forms are submitted by Thursday 9th November at noon.
