Reviewing and assessing NIHR Programme Grant funding applications

Save event

This presentation by Cath Quinn and Andy Barton is jointly hosted by the IHC Developing and Evaluating Complex Interventions (DECI) Group, led by cath.quinn@plymouth.ac.uk and the Community and Primary Care Research Group seminar series, co-ordinated by laura.gill@plymouth.ac.uk.

How research funding committees make decisions can often seem to be shrouded in mystery. Before research bids, which will have taken many hours of numerous peoples time to compile, are funded there may be rejections and there will almost certainly be responses to reviewers or panels to produce.

Based on her experience as a reviewer and as a qualitative methodologist panel member of the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Programme Grants for Applied Research (PGfAR) Cath will:

  • describe the various processes that an application goes through
  • suggest how to work collaboratively and positively with any feedback you receive
  • give suggestions as to how qualitative work can usefully contribute to PGfAR applications
  • summarise key re-occurring issues which weaken the qualitative sections of PGfAR applications
  • make suggestions as to ways in which others can become involved in reviewing and assessing funding applications and discuss why they should consider doing so.

Andy, from the South West Research Design Service (RDS), will add his own observations and insights and answer relevant questions relating to other NIHR funding streams.

All welcome! The seminar starts at 11:00.
