NIHR to launch a streamlined application process

  Created on Monday, 27 Mar 2017. Posted in Funding

The NIHR is launching a streamlined application process for researchers applying for funding. The streamlined, two-stage form will be rolled out across NIHR research and training programmes from May 2017

The revised standard application form will ask for information once, at the point it is required to make either shortlisting or funding decisions. Any information provided during Stage 1 of the process will be automatically available for Stage 2 to avoid repetition and facilitate completion of the application. Applicants will be provided with clear, concise guidance about how to use the forms, including resources provided by INVOLVE about how to set out public involvement plans and present a Plain English Summary.
