PPI funding now available

3 October 2018

Researchers can now apply for funding to carry out patient and public involvement (PPI) activities.

Four £500 starter grants are available to help researchers to get started with PPI.

And one innovation grant worth up to £2000 is available for researchers planning a PPI activity that uses an innovative approach to PPI that will have a wider impact on the practice of PPI.

Deadline for applications is 31 October 2018.

Evidence of PPI in research is increasingly required by major funding bodies in the UK, and the BRC expects investigators wherever possible to actively involve patients and the public in their research.

PPI can lead to treatments that better meet the needs of users and the public, and research results that are more likely to be put into practice.
