Funding available to engage under-served groups in research

19 July 2022

Investigators can now apply for funding for projects which engage under-served groups in research.

£10,000 is available for three projects through the Small Grants Scheme from the North Thames CRN. Funds are to be spent between October 2022 and March 2023, for projects such as:

  • patient and public involvement events
  • digital platforms to support promotion of research
  • part time staff to help with local roadshows

The call is aimed at academic and acute partner organisations, with applications to the CRN to be made through R&D offices. Three applications per Trust are permitted. The JRO is setting up an internal committee to review applications, before putting three forward to the CRN.

If you would like to apply for funding, please submit a completed form to uclh.jro-communications@nhs.net by end of day 11th August 2022.

The email should be marked as an application for the CRN Small Grants Scheme.
