2 Who funds research? A range of organisations: Public and not-for-profit sector bodies Private companies International organisations, fund research within the UK.

3 NHS Funding Streams Medical Research Council NIHR Funding Stream WCLRN DH Flexibility and Sustainability Funding

4 The MRC receives annual 'grant-in-aid' funding from Parliament through the Office of Science and Innovation, which is part of the Department of Trade and Industry. Although government-funded, the MRC is independent in its choice of which research to support. The organisation works closely with the Health Departments, the other UK research councils, industry and other stakeholders to identify and respond to the UK's health. Around 3,300 researchers are supported by MRC-funded programmes in universities and hospitals. The MRC is the UKs largest non-commercial funder of clinical trials. http://www.mrc.ac.uk/Fundingopportunities/index.htm Return Medical Research Council

6 Programme Grants for Applied Research Funding The Programme Grants for Applied Research funding scheme will have an annual budget of £75 million once it reaches full capacity. Individual awards will be for a maximum of £2m over a period of up to five years. The amount of funding awarded will, however, be determined by the scale and nature of the research activity to be conducted.

7 Programme Development Grants Funding Individual awards will be for a maximum of £100k over a period of up to 18 months. The amount of funding awarded will, however, be determined by the scale and nature of the preparatory work to be conducted. The sole purpose of NIHR Programme Development Grants is to enable a research team to undertake preparatory work that will position them to submit a successful Programme Grant application in a subsequent funding competition.

8 Research for Patient Benefit (RfPB) The Research for Patient Benefit (RfPB) Programme is a nationally co-ordinated funding stream for regionally commissioned research. Aims The main aim of the RfPB programme is to support projects in Health Services Research and Public Health. Projects can be either quantitative or qualitative, and should aim to study the way that NHS services are provided and used evaluate whether interventions are effective and provide value for money examine whether alternative means for providing healthcare would be more beneficial in terms of cost and effectiveness formally assess innovations and developments in healthcare which will benefit of patients Funding Individual grants are awarded to fund research projects rather than set up or maintain research units, or new service developments.

9 Research for Innovation Speculation and Creativity (RISC) RISC is a response-mode funding programme established to provide research of direct benefit to users of the NHS in England. The RISC programme is for potentially paradigm-changing projects in Health Services and Public Health Research. Purpose The purpose of the RISC scheme is to fund new and radical ideas for health research that could lead to a step change in the care and management of patients. RISC awards are intended particularly for speculative, novel proposals that are unlikely to gain support during traditional peer review processes. The RISC programme is complementary to the Research for Patient Benefit (RfPB) programme as it provides a response-mode funding stream for applications that are too speculative for RfPB. A fixed grant will be awarded to successful applicants. On completion of the research, grant holders may be able to apply to RfPB to further develop the research theme. http://www.nihr-ccf.org.uk/site/programmes/risc/default.cfm NIHR Funding Stream

10 Invention for Innovation Programme (i4i) The NIHR Invention for Innovation (i4i) Programme is bringing new investment together with two existing, successful NIHR programmes: New and Emerging Applications of Technology (NEAT) and Health Technology Devices (HTD), to improve the identification of promising healthcare technologies and accelerate the development of new healthcare products for the 21st century. Programmes under The umbrella of i4i includes: i4i Future Product Development funding streams Pilot Healthcare Technology Co-operatives (HTCs) Challenge Fund for Innovation supporting NIHR involvement in Assisted Living Innovation Platform NIHR involvement in Knowledge Transfer Partnership programme NIHR involvement with Medical Futures NIHR involvement in MATCH PLUS project The migration of the New and Emerging Applications of Technology (NEAT) and Health Technology Devices (HTD) programmes into the i4i Programme http://www.nihr-ccf.org.uk/site/programmes/neat/default.cfm NIHR Funding Stream

11 HTA Clinical Trials The HTA programme commissions research in three different ways: by advertising standard calls for research proposals that address specific topics by advertising special calls for research proposals that address themed areas by funding HTA clinical trials and evaluation studies that are proposed directly by researchers. Email hta@hta.ac.uk if you would like to be alerted when a new call is advertisedhta@hta.ac.uk More details can be found at: http://www.hta.ac.uk/funding/index.shtml NIHR Funding Stream

12 Health Technology Devices (HTD) The Health Technology Devices Programme aims to stimulate and promote collaborative research that contributes towards the development of new technology which meets patient needs. The HTD programme focuses on supporting the development of new medical devices and healthcare technologies that are capable of exploitation by the healthcare industries. HTD Calls are invited and handled through the HTD web portal at: www.healthtechnologyportal.org.uk NIHR Funding Stream

13 WCLRN The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Comprehensive Clinical Research Network (CCRN) was created as part of the governments research and development strategy, Best Research for Best Health to provide a world-class infrastructure for clinical trials in all areas of disease and clinical need within the NHS. Best Research for Best Health The Western Comprehensive Local Research Network (CLRN) is one of 25 CLRNs across England which form part of the NIHR Comprehensive Clinical Research Network (CCRN). CCRN provides support for clinical trials and other well designed studies in all areas of disease and clinical need. There are 3 funding streams: Research Management & Governance (R&D Office Costs) Delivery Sessional Support (Staffing Costs) Delivery General Service (Running Costs) Return

14 DH Flexibility and Sustainability Funding NIHR Flexibility and Sustainability Funding is a new research funding stream. It helps research active NHS organisations to attract, develop and retain high quality research clinical and support staff by supporting the salaries of their Faculty members in a flexible manner NIHR Flexibility and Sustainability Funding will provide for salary costs of NIHR Faculty in clearly defined circumstances. It will only support salary costs, including direct (i.e. salary) and indirect (e.g. payroll and HR) costs. It will not fund running costs. More details can be found at: http://www.nihr.ac.uk/infrastructure/pages/infrastructure_fu nding_flexibility.aspx Return
