NIHR Programme Grants for Applied Research

The NIHR Programme Grants for Applied Research scheme invites proposals to develop individual research programmes that will generate evidence to improve health outcomes in England through three factors:

  • Promotion of health.
  • Prevention of ill health.
  • Optimal disease management.
  • Individual proposals funded through the Programme typically consist of an inter-related group of high quality projects focused on a coherent theme, including clinical, health economics, statistics, qualitative and behavioural sciences.


All NHS organisations and other providers of NHS services in England may apply in collaboration with an appropriate academic partner or partners.

Academic partners can be located outside England if an appropriate case is made in the application.

In order to apply applicants need to be registered with the NIHR secure Research Management System. Once logged in, applicants will be able to generate an online application form.

Deadline: 3 April 2019
