Practice-Based Research Leaders Awards – 2022 Call
As part of the NIHR School for Social Care Research’s commitment to developing research capacity in adult social care, we are inviting Stage 1 applications for Practice-Based Research Leaders Awards (PBRLA).
With support from the NIHR Academy, we are seeking applications from individuals or teams to develop team or organisational-level research skills and/or capacity as practice-based research leaders, and by doing so to become research champions within the adult social care sector.
The PBRLA Scheme aims to provide tailored and targeted support for individuals or teams in positions of responsibility who have the ability and influence to develop research skills and/or capacity within their organisations (or across organisations). This is particularly where resources would help accelerate progress in developing team or organisational research capacity.
Funding of £200,000 is available for this Call; we expect to fund 3-4 applications.
The deadline for Stage 1 applications is 16.30 on Monday 3 October 2022. Applicants are asked to submit an Intention to Submit by 16.30 on Thursday 22 September 2022.
