NIHR Public Health Themed Calls Announced

Leave a comment

NIHR2

The NIHR PHR Programme funds research to generate evidence to inform the delivery of non-NHS interventions intended to improve the health of the public and reduce inequalities in health.

The primary aim of the programme is the evaluation of practical interventions. Funding is available for both primary research (mainly evaluative, but also some preparatory research) and secondary research (evidence synthesis); precise methods will need to be appropriate to the question being asked and the feasibility of the research.

The PHR Programme will generally only consider applications focused on intervention development where an intervention already exists and for which there is an evidence base, but it requires adaptation to situations such as a new context (e.g. a change in setting or target behaviour or client group) or amalgamation of separate, defined interventions so that they complement each other. 

The highlighted calls and deadlines are as follows:
