NIHR Academy: 6 new 'incubators' announced

  Created on Thursday, 01 Nov 2018. Posted in Funding

The new NIHR Academy will work to attract professional groups where research capacity is low, including nurses, pharmacists and social scientists, and to break down barriers to career progression, especially for women. It will build capacity in under-represented sectors such as primary care, public health and social care, and upskill the research workforce in disciplines such as bioinformatics and data science.

To that end the Academy has announced six new ‘incubators’ to build research capacity in

  • primary care
  • health
  • social care
  • health data science
  • nursing
  • emergency care
