Health and Social care Policy Research Funding Programme Event

The NIHR Research Design Service (RDS) advisers at the University of Hertfordshire (UH) will be hosting a virtual NIHR Policy Research Programme (PRP) event on the 16th of September from 10.00am to 12.00pm 

The PRP commissions high quality and cost-effective research to deliver relevant, timely and accessible evidence to inform national policy decisions across the full policy remit of the Department of Health and Social Care. PRP funded research will normally:

  • provide robust evidence to inform policy development and implementation in timely and accessible ways, including assessment of potential impact and cost-effectiveness
  • evaluate policies, including the evaluation of pilots before policies are fully implemented
  • tackle policy priorities and evidence needs over the longer term.

This event will provide relevant information on applying for this programme.
