This week, we learn what the NIHR is looking for in bids to the rapid response section of its public health programme that was introduced in 2018. We also hear about the UK Intelligence Community Postdoctoral Research Fellowships and some small grants on offer at the Galton Institute. Meanwhile, in our Know How section, Adam Golberg explains why academics need the input of non-expert research managers.
