New podcast: Demystifying the NIHR

04 April 2022

A new Eastern Arc podcast has been released that looks at the National Institute for Health Research. Established in 2006, the NIHR has an annual budget of more than £1bn. It funds health and social care, and has been seen as the ‘research arm of the NHS’.

However, many who do research that is relevant to the funder are deterred from applying because its structure can seem confusing, its priorities obscure, and its processes unclear.

This podcast is a recording of a live event we held in March 2022, which provided a clear, straightforward overview of how the funder is structured, its 10 basic schemes, and how applications are assessed, together with insights into how you can frame your application for the best chance of success, and where you can find out more.

To listen to the podcast, go to our dedicated podcast webpage here. Alternatively, you can access it on Spotify or iTunes.
