The NIHR Research Design Services East of England (RDS EoE) has planned a programme of regional support for health researchers with the aim of assisting our clients to achieve the milestones to be accomplished before the submission of an application. Our pre-submission panel is for teams who have their proposals ready and who wish to receive RDS feedback near to submission.
The pre-submission panel aims to replicates the NIHR’s funding committee with a mixture of healthcare researchers and specialists in areas such as health economics, statistics and public involvement and will provide feedback consisting of the panel’s view of any fixable and non-fixable faults of the proposal and readiness for submission.
Proposers are not required to attend, but should send their completed bids to their RDS key adviser by 31 August 2017. Applicants who have not previously used the RDS are also welcome to submit proposals for feedback from the panel to Dr Muhammad Waqar at email@example.com who will allocate a key adviser.
Key advisers will give feedback to the proposers as soon as possible after the meeting. Any bid nearing completion and within a few weeks of submission will be considered.
