Home Events NIHR Grant Applications - seminar & support event


Are you planning to submit a grant application to NIHR? We are holding a one-day event at the Knowledge Spa, Truro, Cornwall on Tuesday 8 October that is aimed at helping you to improve your chances of success.

The morning seminar session is open to anyone to come and hear RDS advisers give presentations on what makes a good grant proposal. Topics covered will include:

  • what does the NIHR look for?
  • the application as a marketing document: selling the topic, selling the method, and selling the team
  • the team
  • public involvement
  • clarity of description and explanation
  • feasibility issues
  • identifying and avoiding potential pitfalls.

The afternoon support session of one-to-one appointments is for those who would like to discuss their own proposal with an RDS adviser. If you are interested in this opportunity, appointments need to be booked in advance by selecting the appropriate option on the registration form and you will be asked to supply in advance a brief description of your project idea.
