Funding opportunities

The NIHR plays a key role in investing in the research fabric of the nation to support research in health, public health and social care.

The NIHR makes this investment by funding NHS and research active organisations to provide research infrastructure or support, such as through their Biomedical Research Centres or Clinical Trials Units, or to address other NIHR priorities such as through their Research Schools, Research Design Service and Research Units with partner academic institutions.

The current themed call is Injuries, accidents and urgent and emergency care

Themed calls are funding opportunities focusing on a particular research area in which all NIHR programmes participate.
