The National Institute for Health Research at 10 Years An impact synthesis: 100 Impact Case Studies

  Created on Monday, 06 Jun 2016. Posted in News Items

To mark its tenth anniversary, NIHR commissioned the Policy Research in Science and Medicine unit to consider the question: ‘What are the ways in which NIHR has benefited the health research landscape in the past ten years?’

The subsequent report identifies and celebrates 100 examples of positive change resulting from NIHR’s support of research.  Drawing on 100 case studies, it highlights the sheer breadth of benefits and impacts of research, capacity building and other activities that have taken place since its creation in 2006.  It concludes with a reflection of how the NIHR has transformed R&D in and for the NHS and the patients it serves.
