NIHR Incubator Competition 2022

  Thursday, 15 Dec 2022 | Funding Deadline

The NIHR Incubators address areas where there is a need to build research capacity on a national level. NIHR provides some funding to enable key stakeholders to identify the barriers that exist and to suggest and implement, where possible, solutions to building research capacity in a sustainable and meaningful way. This initiative aims to encourage early career interest in target disciplines to build identifiable communities through networking and provision of bespoke training and development support. Incubators are virtual, managed across multiple sites and organised by discipline. They provide targeted high level career development support, led by experts in the field and supported by the NIHR. Incubators are bespoke to meet the needs of each area and are developing at different paces.

NIHR welcome applicants to consider planning for and proposing Incubators in any relevant area for NIHR, being particularly mindful of NIHR’s strategy: ‘Best Research for Best Health the Next Chapter'. For this competition we also particularly encourage applications for Incubators that:

  • Support researchers from minoritised ethnic backgrounds
  • Support careers in pharmacy

Deadline for proposals: 15 December 2022
