Call for Research Proposals

Call for Research Proposals

As part of the NIHR School for Social Care Research’s commitment to developing the evidence base in adult social care, we are inviting applications for full Research Proposals.

We are seeking innovative, original, high-quality proposals which represent good value for money. This is a one-stage call for research proposals for up to £100,000 with projects expected to start in Spring 2021.

Proposals in response to this Call may be developmental applications for longer-term research plans in adult social care.

We are seeking to encourage new and developing adult social care researchers to lead studies through this Call. We also welcome proposals led by practice researchers, social care professionals (including managers and commissioners), and people who use services and/or carers.

The deadline for submission is Monday 30 November 2020.

The School is also inviting applications for Research Career Development Awards from individuals who have a commitment to developing the evidence base to improve adult social care practice in England. Applicants can request funding of up to £50,000 with a submission deadline of 16.30 on Monday 18 January 2021. Read more
