NIHR Programme Development Grants (PDG) : NIHR Mental health call

  Wednesday, 04 Aug 2021 | Funding Deadline

NIHR Programme Development Grants (PDG) are designed to enable a research team to carry out targeted preparatory work to develop a competitive Programme Grants for Applied Research (PGfAR) funding application. They can also be used to further develop an existing or ongoing PGfAR-funded programme of research.

The PDG programme has launched a funding call inviting proposals for research to address the challenge of mental health. This call is an important part of the Department of Health and Social Care's ongoing interest in mental health and the ambition of the recently established Mental Health Research Goals 2020-2030 to fund high-quality and timely evidence and to support research at the source of need. NIHR is particularly interested in applications that include populations and communities with high mental health burden, have been historically underserved by research activity, and address equality, diversity and inclusion.

The call offers researchers flexibility to focus on any subject area providing it falls within the mental health call remit, and encourages innovative and collaborative approaches to addressing unmet need for mental health patients, service users and carers.


Deadline for proposals: 04 August 2021
