Consortia in UKRI scheme must have robust non-academic input
- The central research question for consortia is how community assets can be mobilised and integrated into health systems to tackle inequalities.
- Public and non-academic input is vital in this scheme and must be embedded within the proposal.
- Representatives of non-academic partners can be included as co-investigators.
- All consortia should be multidisciplinary and can be led by a researcher from any of the four participating research councils’ remits.
- Applicants are encouraged to watch a webinar hosted by the scheme’s programme director earlier this month.
Established to fund up to 12 projects at up to £250,000 each, the Build Community Research Consortia to Address Health Disparities call is a scheme given important financial backing by UK Research and Innovation.
