NIHR Research for Patient Benefit (RfPB) social care funding roadshow events

Home Events NIHR RfPB roadshow events


The NIHR will be investing in future social care research with annual funding calls via the RfPB programme. The next call is planned to launch in September and will follow a similar format to the first call, however to give it a clearer social care identity it will be launched as Research for Social Care (RfSC).

The RfSC call will have a budget of £3m and further information will be released shortly. A draft specification document for the call is available, but details will be confirmed once launched in September.

We are running regional events which will offer an opportunity to gain a greater understanding of RfSC funding. Attendance at these events is FREE and refreshments will be provided. Researchers currently developing, or considering developing, a proposal for submission to RfSC for funding are invited to take advantage of a one-to-one appointment to discuss their proposed research idea or study.

Five events will be held across England as follows:
