NIHR Public Health Research Programme: Invitation for Applications
The NIHR Public Health Research (PHR) Programme are accepting applications to their researcher-led workstream
The PHR Programme funds research that evaluates public health interventions, specifically to provide new knowledge on the benefits, costs, acceptability and wider impacts of non-NHS interventions intended to improve the health of the public and reduce inequalities in health. Proposed primary outcome measures should always be health related, unless otherwise specified in a commissioning brief. Examples include examining whether regeneration programmes improve public health and reduce health inequalities; evaluating employer schemes to encourage walking or cycling to work; and assessing interventions that encourage healthy eating among school children.
Applicants wishing to evaluate public health interventions that sit both inside and outside of the NHS, or on the boundary, are encouraged to discuss their proposals with PHR Programme staff at an early stage. Enquiries may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or via telephone:+44 (0)23 8059 9697.
Examples of previously funded studies can be found on the PHR Portfolio Projects webpage
