Funding limit:
Levels of funding are typically up to £50,000 per research project. They support a wide range of projects, differing by research question, methodology, and existing funding. For example, They might support pilot data collection, to help you strengthen later proposals for substantial research grants from other, larger research funders, and clear pipelines for future work strengthen such proposals. They might support studentships, although generally do so as a matched-funder, and They might support an entire research project. They appreciate cost-effectiveness, and occasions where a small contribution from us yields much.
● Awards for practical projects are usually up to £10,000, although applications for larger grants will be considered in special circumstances.

Project start date: Not Found
Project duration: Not Found

Eligible organization: Scientists benefit from being around other scientists, and so the research they fund is generally university-based.

Linking with other researchers in different fields benefits children with these conditions, and therefore your willing collaboration is a condition of grant-giving. They expect you to come to meetings and/or conferences with us, and especially to link up with other researchers when they suggest this.
● They see research funding as a collaborative process, with you as their partner scientist. They ask you as a research partner to keep us up to date with your progress and aware of findings as they emerge. Sometimes they are able to assist researchers in matters beyond the financial.
● They encourage their research partners to affiliate with peer organizations. They are an NIHR non-commercial partner following self-declaration, and encourage researchers to seek adoption of their project into the relevant portfolio.
● They are absolutely interested in any proposed project that fits their main research interests and accept (and encourage) applications from researchers based at any university.
