Knowledge Mobilisation Research Fellowship (KMRF) has opened for applications today.
The KMRF competition is aimed at individuals with healthcare management and/or academic experience, designed to support the more effective use of research knowledge.
Knowledge Mobilisation Research Fellowships (KMRF) are designed to support a balance of innovative knowledge mobilisation and research into the processes and impacts of such innovation. Through innovative practice and systematic study of that practice KMR Fellows should advance knowledge and understanding about research use, influence and impact.
In order to support partnership working between Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) and publicly funded healthcare bodies (NHS organisations or other publicly funded organisations providing health or social care services, for example social enterprises or local authorities), applications must be supported by organisations from both of these different sectors.
KMR Fellowships are personal awards designed to buy out an individual’s salary costs, support the development of innovative knowledge mobilisation activity, and provide the resources necessary to undertake a research investigation of that knowledge mobilisation.

Closing date for applications is Thursday 14 September 2017.
Interviews will be held in Leeds on the 16 January 2018, and successful awardees must be able to commence the fellowship on 1 April, 1 May or 1 June 2018.
