NIHR announces publication of its report 10 Years On: Adapting and Evolving to New Challenges in Developing Tomorrow’s Health Research Leaders and a series of recommendations that the organisation is now starting to implement. The recommendations include a move to a more strategic approach to complement the traditional ‘response-mode’ funding model and also more integration of the current programmes. They were based on a review process comprising an analysis of the evidence collected and a consultation process.
Over the next year all NIHR’s academic training and higher career personal awards will be integrated into a new structure, The NIHR Academy with an associated academic strategy. The programmes and schemes overseen by the NIHR Academy will also be simplified to become fully flexible to meet the needs of the workforce and a portfolio management approach will be developed to address current and future skills and discipline gaps.
