NIHR challenges researchers to make a video that gets the public excited about research

10 December 2012

The NIHR has launched a competition, open to all NIHR researchers, to create a video to enthuse audiences about research.

NIHR Health Researchers will have a chance to communicate their clinical, applied health or social care research and get patients, colleagues and the public excited about research.

Entrants should be a member of the NIHR Faculty and the research featured should have clear potential for benefitting patients and the public within 5 years of its completion. Research can involve: patients; samples or data from patients; people who are not patients; populations; health technology assessment; or health services research. It cannot involve animals or their tissue.

For details on how to enter visit the Training Coordination Centre webpage.

Closing date submissions is 22 March 2013.

The winning video will receive a £250 book token and there will be other prizes for the runners up. Winning videos will be posted on the Official NIHR TV YouTube channel.
