Policy Research Programme

Home Funding Funding opportunities Policy Research Programme

The Policy Research Programme (PRP) commissions high quality research that offers value for money and delivers robust, relevant, timely, accessible and intelligible evidence to ministers and Arms-Length Bodies (ALBs).

The programme works closely with the Department of Health (DH) Science, Research and Evidence (SRE) Directorate to support policy makers in England to make informed decisions for the benefit of the general population, patients and the NHS. Its priorities are discussed by the Department’s R&D Committee, chaired by the DH Chief Scientific Adviser, and high priority needs are then met by commissioning the research.

Priorities are also informed by the Department’s strategic objectives and business plans, are influenced by stakeholder consultation and expert advice, and are continually evolving.

Further details of the programme can be found on the NIHR website.
