Institute of Epidemiology & Health Care


Funding Round 6 (FR6)

FR6, the internal funding round, will open from 06/06/2022 and close on 30/09/2022. There will be £250,000.00 available for each member to award according to their local process.

It remains a priority of the school to facilitate collaborations and linkages with other strategic partners, in particular to include underrepresented research areas within Primary Care. Costing external collaborators at 5% FTE is the current guideline, however where there is robust justification for higher FTEs, this will be considered. All applications are expected to be led or co-led by an early or mid-career researcher.  We encourage applications for projects up to around £50k-£100k for this call, demonstrating value for money.  Smaller projects are also welcome.
