Research Programme Grants

A research programme grant is a large, long term (over a period of a number of years) multi-million funding grant. Research programme grants are a collaborative, multidisciplinary approach to a group of related projects, which may address an interrelated set of questions across a broader area of research. Programme grants are aimed at producing evidence that enables researchers to turn new interventions into better care and enable policy makes, patients and professionals to make more informed decisions about healthcare.

When applying for a research programme grant, the Principle Investigator should have a substantial record of successfully securing research funding and delivering high quality research.

There are a range of different research programme grants offered throughout each year by the  National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), Medical Research Council (MRC) and Wellcome.

For details of eligibility, duration and costs included, please click on the relevant programme.

Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust Research and Innovation have a dedicated team to assist with research funding applications. For further information about where to begin with the funding, application process, and study set up please contact us.

NIHR Evidence Synthesis Programme

20/34 NIHR Evidence Synthesis Programme Grant Scheme 2020

The NIHR Evidence Synthesis Programme Grant Scheme (formerly the Cochrane Programme Grant scheme) was established to provide high quality evidence synthesis and systematic reviews that will be of direct benefit to users of the NHS and social care services in England. In a change to the previous scheme the Evidence Synthesis Programme Grants scheme will now be an annual call.

Grants will be for up to £100,000 for an eighteen-month project, to support a programme of work that includes both new reviews; updating of existing reviews; a suite of methodologically complex reviews; and reviews that demonstrate meeting a clear NHS and social care need.

Call open; 15th June 2020

Submission deadline; 12th October 2020

Efficacy and Mechanism Evaluation (EME) Programme 

The EME Programme looks to attract studies with novel methodological designs that deliver results more efficiently, reduce the study timeline, and maximise the knowledge gained. The translational research it supports covers a wide range of new and repurposed interventions, such as diagnostic or prognostic tests and decision-making tools, therapeutics or psychological treatments, medical devices, and public health initiatives delivered in the NHS.

The EME programme is a partnership between the Medical Research Council (MRC) and the NIHR.

Health Technology Assessment (HTA) 

Health Technology Assessment (HTA) research is undertaken where some evidence already exists to show that a technology can be effective and this needs to be compared to the current standard intervention to see which works best. Research can evaluate any intervention used in the treatment, prevention or diagnosis of disease, provided the study outcomes lead to findings that have the potential to be of direct benefit to NHS patients. Proposals may include primary research, evidence synthesis, or feasibility and pilot studies.

NIHR statement - 

We understand that many people will be prioritising NHS work and supporting COVID 19 research during the current pandemic. It is NIHR policy that these should always be the priority as reinforced by our April Programme Director’s message. It is also NIHR policy to keep the future research pipeline healthy and to support the research community. The HTA Programme is therefore advertising the following topics for stage 1 applications with a 16 week preparation period and deadline of 29 July 2020 unless otherwise stated. Please also note that these first stage applications do not need to contain a large amount of detail and that we only ask for estimates of costs at this stage.

Programme Grants for Applied Research (PGfAR)

The aim of NIHR Programme Grants for Applied Research (PGfAR) is to deliver research findings that will lead to clear and identifiable patient benefits, typically through promotion of health, prevention of ill health, and optimal disease management (including safety and quality).

PGfAR is researcher led and does not specify topics for research. However, the research must be in an area of priority or need for the NHS and the social care sector of the Department of Health and Social Care, with particular emphasis on areas that cause significant burden, where other research funders may not be focused, or where insufficient funding is available.

PGfAR has three funding opportunities a year that typically launch in February, June and October.

MRC Programme Grant

Programme grants provide larger, longer term (five years) and renewable programme funding. They aim to help the medical science community to ‘think bigger’. A programme is defined as a coordinated and coherent group of related projects, which may be developed to address an interrelated set of questions across a broad scientific area.

The expectation is that not all the questions will necessarily be answered within the tenure of the award. Parts of the programme may well be a continuation of current activity; however, other elements should be innovative and ambitious.

Key information

Open to: Academic groups with a track record of research activity.

Two stage process? - No, however please note the pre-application stage.

Pre-application stage: Applicants interested in submitting a partnership grant must contact the appropriate MRC programme manager and provide a brief abstract of the partnership grant to help them consider fit to the scheme. This initial contact with the MRC programme manager should take place a minimum of six weeks before the relevant submission deadline.

Full application closing date - Depending on the remit of the science, Programme grants should be submitted to one of the four research boards rounds: Infections & Immunity, Molecular & Cellular Medicine, Neurosciences & Mental Health, Population & Systems Medicine. Deadlines for the Boards can be found here: https://mrc.ukri.org/funding/deadlines/

Outcome: Various, please see the funding call page for further details.
