For health researchers planning to submit bids in 2018, the NIHR Research Design Services East of England (RDS EoE) has planned a programme of regional support. Bid development workshops are for bids at the first or second draft stage where the objectives are clearly formulated. Participants should be the principal investigator and/or one other member of the team.
At the workshop, the participant/research team will be expected to present a summary of their research proposal to researchers and RDS staff from whom they will obtain general feedback. Research applicants will also have an opportunity to receive project specific feedback from specialists in areas such as health economics, statistics and public involvement.
Applicants should send their drafts to their RDS key adviser by 15 May 2018. Applicants who have not previously used the RDS are welcome to submit proposals for inclusion to Muhammad Waqar by 15 May 2018. For further information and future Bid development workshop dates see flyer.
