NIHR Application Development Awards (ADA)

NIHR seeking to commission Application Development Awards

The NIHR are seeking to commission up to ten Application Development Awards (ADA) to carry out development work prior to research applications, with a requirement for applicant teams to involve Health and Care Professionals (HCP).

Through these ADAs and other HCP specific initiatives, we are offering more opportunities for HCPs to develop as highly skilled researchers and research leaders, and to move towards a more multi-professional approach to addressing the health and care challenges of today and the future. For the purposes of this opportunity, Health and Care Professionals (excluding doctors and dentists) are defined as:

  • Nurses (including nurses that work in social care)
  • Midwives
  • Pharmacists
  • Healthcare scientists
  • Allied Health Professions (as specified by NHS England)

These ADAs are intended to support future applications for funding from any of the NIHR research programmes. Therefore applicants may find it helpful to look at the information available about the programmes. These ADAs are not programme-specific in nature.

Closes: 13:00pm on 26 September 2024
