NUH Research Funding

Applications invited for NUH pump priming grants

A grant scheme established earlier this year is making up to £150,000 available annually for research projects. The ‘pump priming’ competition is being led by Nottingham University Hospitals Charity and the Department of Research and Development. Applications are now invited for a share of the funding.

The scheme is intended primarily to provide cash injections to get early studies up and running and aims to increase the chances of applicants being successful in winning substantial external funding.

Projects should be of potentially high quality, including proof of principle and feasibility studies. They should offer the potential to benefit patients within a three to five year time span and proposals that are interdisciplinary and which promote Trust-University partnerships are particularly welcome.

The scheme runs twice a year and is funded by a generous donation from NUH Charity and the Department of Research and Development. Over £75,000 will be available for the next round of applications. It is expected that the funds available will be divided between a number of small project grants of up to £10,000 each, but larger awards may be given to exceptional projects and there is no formal upper limit.

Applications are invited from medically qualified staff, nurses and allied health professionals until the closing date of 12 noon on Friday 23 April 2010.
