The National Institute for Health Research has £120 million to expand the number of Collaborations for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care from nine to twelve. Tony Soteriou of the Department of Health explains how applicants for the scheme will be treated.
What’s going to happen between now and the deadline on 13 May?
Everyone who wants CLAHRC funding, even if they are part of an existing collaboration, will have to put in an application. It’s a single-stage competition, so applicants have to submit fully detailed proposals with supplementary information, such as papers. This will then be reviewed and a panel will make funding recommendations. The NIHR is also hosting a meeting for prospective applicants on 13 February.
