1 NIHR Programme Grants for Applied Research Professor Adrian Grant Programme Director NIHR Dementia Research Workshop 14 January 2011

2 Programme Grants Support programmes of research rather than individual studies Individual awards for a maximum of £2m over up to five years (average of no more than £400k per year) Funding is made to an NHS Organisation in England working in collaboration with appropriate academic partners Two-stage assessment process Applications and post-award processes managed by team at the NIHR Central Commissioning Facility (NIHR CCF) Background

3 Programme Grants Support top quality, collaborative, multidisciplinary teams Downstream, applied research Collection of inter-related research activities Coherent stream of work, where the whole is greater than sum of the individual parts Often presented as workpackages, subdivided into discrete activities Purpose

4 Programme Grants Dementia care in the community Prof Steve Iliffe, Central & North West London NHS Foundation Trust Support at home through psychological and social interventions Prof Martin Orrell, North East London NHS Foundation Trust Optimizing care in care homes Prof Clive Ballard, Oxfordshire & Buckinghamshire Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust Managing challenging behaviour in dementia Prof Esme Moniz-Cook, Humber Mental Health Teaching NHS Trust Preventing acute confusional illness Prof John Young, Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust Some currently funded programmes:

5 Programme Grants Track record and appropriate mix of skills Relevance to priorities and needs of the NHS Likelihood of significant benefit to patients and the NHS within 3- 5 years of programmes end Quality of the proposed research Value for money Patient and Public Involvement given particular attention Selection criteria

6 Programme Grants Fuller details are on the website: Enquires are welcomed: The Programme Grants stand in the market place Telephone: Address:NIHR CCF Grange House 15 Church Street Twickenham, TW1 3NL Further information

7 NIHR Research for Patient Benefit Professor David Armstrong Programme Director NIHR Dementia Research Workshop 14 January 2011

8 The RfPB Programme Response-mode funding programme with a budget of £25m per year Project grants may be: Up to 36 months in duration Up to £250k Three competitions per year National Programme with ten Regional Funding Committees Open to researchers in the NHS in England

9 The RfPB Programme Supports high quality investigator-led research projects which have a clear trajectory into patient benefit Includes qualitative or quantitative research which: –Studies the way the NHS services are provided and used –Evaluates whether interventions are effective and provide value for money –Supports pilot or feasibility studies leading to major applications to other NIHR funding streams

10 The Application Process One stage application process Preliminary scrutiny and administrative sift External peer and lay review Full assessment by one of ten regional funding committees Final ratification Notification of outcome

11 The Scrutiny Stage Three questions will be asked: Is the proposal likely to lead to patient benefit? Is the presentation and/or methods appropriate for the research question? Is the application form completed according to the instructions described in the guidance?

12 Research for Patient Benefit Spend across health category ( ) Generic Health Relevance 15% Mental Health 19% Reproductive 8% Cancer 7% Oral & Gastro 7% Neurological 6% Stroke 6%

13 Research for Patient Benefit Essentially will use existing processes (Scrutiny Committee, scientific and lay review, Regional Funding Committee appraisal) Will alert all Regional Committees of the Call and advise them of the strategic need to fund applications in this area, subject to quality thresholds Will participate with other Programmes in cross-referring applications Dementia call
