RDS Social Care Research Residential Grant Development and Writing Retreat

The NIHR Research Design Service (RDS) is offering a unique opportunity for research teams across England to attend a three-day residential Grant Development and Writing Retreat in March 2023. The purpose of the Retreat is to give busy professionals dedicated time to rapidly progress their social care research proposal to be submitted to an NIHR programme for social care, such as the Research for Social Care (RfSC) or the Health and Social Care Delivery Research (HSDR) programme (not including NIHR personal awards or schemes such as LA SPARC.)

The retreat will be held 15 to 17 March 2023 at the Castle Green Hotel, Kendal.

The Retreat will provide a supportive environment for teams of two or three people, to develop high quality social care research proposals.

Those attending the Retreat will have access to a range of RDS advisers and protected time to work intensively on their proposals. Continued support from the RDS will be essential in preparing your application for submission to an NIHR programme for social care research, such as the RfSC or HSDR.

It is encouraged but not essential, for attendance at the Retreat, that a member of the wider research team is a social care professional employed in England.

This year we welcome research teams who are working in the field of Child and Adolescent Health and social care research. Successful applicants will be offered a free place at the retreat which will include food and accommodation and an evening welcome dinner on the 14 March*.

The deadline for receipt of application forms is 16 December 2022
