Research Design Service London
NIHR Research for Patient Benefit (RfPB) funding programme workshop
We are hosting a workshop for prospective RfPB applicants to learn more about the funding programme and to develop their research ideas. This workshop will be run by the NIHR Research Design Service (RDS) London, in collaboration with the NIHR Central Commissioning Facility.
There will be talks by representatives of the RfPB Programme and RDS London, offering advice on how to apply to the programme, with opportunities to ask questions. This will be followed by two interactive workshops focused on: implementing patient and public involvement (PPI); and developing your research question.
This workshop is aimed at London-based researchers developing a research idea, or preparing a grant application, with the intention to submit to RfPB. Attendees should bring a research idea, which they intend to submit to RfPB, to develop in the workshops.
RfPB funds NHS research covering a wide range of health service challenges. The aim of the programme is to fund topics and research methodologies that increase the effectiveness of NHS services, provide value for money and benefit patients. RfPB is the NIHR funding programme usually best suited to first-time grant applicants. More information about RfPB.
The workshop is free, but places are limited and registration is required.
