Call for Research Proposals – Dementia

Call for Research Proposals – Dementia

As part of the NIHR Three Schools’ Dementia Research Programme, we are inviting proposals for research projects to address priorities for improving the lives of people living with or at risk of dementia, family and other carers.

We are seeking innovative, original, high-quality proposals which represent good value for money. Although this is an open call, we would particularly welcome proposals:

  • focusing on post-diagnostic support and/or end-of-life care
  • that explore equality, diversity and inclusion issues in dementia prevention, care and support, including in relation to the ‘oldest old’ and people with multiple long-term conditions
  • where research will be carried out in localities that are not so well engaged in dementia studies.

Through this call, we are also seeking to encourage new and developing dementia researchers to lead studies, as well as proposals led by practice researchers, professionals (including managers and commissioners), and people living with dementia and/or carers.

Funding of up to £200,000 is available for projects between January 2023 and March 2024.

This is a one-stage call for proposals. Proposals must be submitted by 16.30 on Wednesday 7 September 2022.
