Strategic Award

Depending on funding available, we occasionally call for applications to our Strategic Award funding scheme. These are time limited calls which focus on specific areas of need as strategically defined in consultation with our Research Advisory Board.

The Strategic Award call is based on addressing research questions that are likely to translate into real differences for patients. The likelihood of adoption of the research by the NHS and potential to change practice is also taken into account.

We regret that our income generation was severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and we regret that we are not running strategic grant calls at this time. We look forward to being in a position to open this funding opportunity and we will communicate with the research community when we do.
