For health researchers planning to submit bids in 2017, the NIHR Research Design Services East of England (RDS EoE) has planned a programme of regional support. Our bid development panels are for bids at the first or second draft stage, where the objectives are clearly formulated. Participants should be the principal investigator and/or other member(s) of the team.
Applicants should send their drafts to their RDS key adviser by 9 May 2017, it is suggested that participants work on their bids with their RDS key adviser before attending the panel. Applicants who have not previously used the RDS are also welcome to submit proposals for feedback from the panel. Bids should be submitted for inclusion to RDS East of England central office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The participant/research team will be allotted their own time slot and will have the opportunity to discuss their research and receive feedback from a panel of generalist advisers as well as specialists in areas such as health economics, statistics and public involvement. There are 5 places per workshop. Please consult the RDS East of England central office at email@example.com or on 01206 874856 for details.
