The NIHR Research Design Service (RDS) is offering a unique opportunity for health, social care and public health professionals across England to attend a three-day residential Grant Development & Writing Retreat in September 2018.

The purpose of the Retreat is to give busy professionals dedicated time to rapidly progress their research proposal.

Applications are invited from individuals or teams of two or three people, at least one of whom must be a health, social care or public health professional working in England. Successful applicants will be offered a free place at the retreat which will include food and accommodation.

If you think your research team would benefit from protected time and expert support, you can apply to attend the Retreat by submitting a standard form to your local RDS by 6 June.
