SPCR Involvement and Engagement Funding Calls
SPCR Patient and Public Involvement and Public Engagement grant
[opportunity for all researchers in spcr departments]
The SPCR would like to contribute to the NIHR’s ambition to develop new ideas to improve patient and public involvement (PPI) and public engagement activities. This funding call is to encourage researchers to trial novel and creative approaches to PPI and/ or public engagement or extend their work to reach new audiences. The patient and public involvement and public engagement projects need to have a strong link to primary care research. This research can be funded by any (inter)national funder to be eligible for this funding call.
Funding can be requested for up to £8,000. The School aims to fund a combination of smaller and larger projects. Further information and eligibility criteria can be found in the call's guidance notes, which can be downloaded below.
To apply for a grant, an application needs to be submitted via email to the SPCR Patient and Public Involvement and Engagement Officer, Esther van Vliet (email@example.com) by Monday 18 May 2020 before 1.00pm. Only submissions using the template below will be considered for funding.
This is the second time the SPCR runs this call. Successful applications from the previous SPCR Patient and Public Involvement and Public Engagement funding call can be found here.
SPCR Engagement and Dissemination grant - Linking with awareness campaigns
[opportunity for spcr funded research]
The NIHR School for Primary Care Research (SPCR) has a track record of funding high quality primary care research. The SPCR is committed to increasing engagement and dissemination of its funded research and raise awareness of primary care research.
As such, the SPCR is launching a funding call for engagement and dissemination activities with non-academic audiences based on SPCR funded research. Activities may be public talks, hands-on activities in a community setting, information stands in public spaces or workshops with (non-academic) professionals. Creativity in the types of activities proposed is warmly welcomed.
The activity should be linked to an existing national or local health awareness campaign. Examples of national campaigns can be found here and here. These overviews are not exhaustive and applicants are welcome to find their own awareness campaign, as long as these are organised by a non-profit organisation
This funding call is now closed and applications are no longer accepted. The call is expected to be repeated in May/ June 2020.
