The Nuffield Foundation is launching calls from research into musculoskeletal conditions with a dedicated fund of £12.5m over the next 10 years, with £6.25m to be awarded in the first 5 years.
There are three different programmes available:
- Research to exploit existing national-level longitudinal and administrative data on the bio/social/economic determinants and outcomes of musculoskeletal conditions through secondary analysis of existing data.
- Research to integrate and exploit local health, social care and other data sources in the UK at a local-level through funding one or more local data integration pilot sites. It is anticipated that this will be funded in partnership with Versus Arthritis.
- Interdisciplinary research into musculoskeletal conditions that will generate new knowledge on health and social wellbeing for those living with musculoskeletal conditions.
Award Amount: Funding is available for projects between £10,000 – £500,000 with most projects expected to be in the £50,000 – £300,000 range.
Deadline: Intent to submit forms need to be submitted by 10th January 2019 with the outline proposal submitted by 28th January 2019.
