UK National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) opportunities, late 2020

Get to know these funding opportunities.

Second Call for Global Health Research Units

The strategic aim across the Global Health Research Units programme is to: 1) address locally-identified challenges in lower and middle income countries (LMICs, including Colombia) through equitable research partnerships between researchers and institutions in the UK and ODA-eligible countries; 2) to generate the scientific evidence that can improve health outcomes for people in low resource settings through improving practice and informing policy; 3) strengthen research and research management capacity and capability to support sustainability of research in partner countries.

These strategic level aims are the same for the Global Health Research Units and Global Health Research Groups. The core differences lie in the status of the research partnerships at start-up, the scale and extent of the research and partnership ambition, and the likely impact of work programme outputs.

All applications must have two Joint Lead Applicants (one at an eligible LMIC institution and one at an eligible UK institution).

Joint Lead Applicants will normally be researchers employed by a research institution, or a Higher Education Institution (HEI) or a not for profit organisation. Dependent on the nature of the partnership, there may be other affiliated Co-applicants (in addition to the two Joint Lead Applicants), and Collaborators including service level providers.

Funding amount: Up to £7 million over a period of up to 5 years

Deadlines:

  • Intent to Submit (Mandatory): 20 April 2021
  • Application: 18 May 2021

Third Call for Global Health Research Groups

These awards will provide funding to collaborations of specialist researchers within universities and research institutes in lower and middle income countries (LMICs, including Colombia) and the UK who wish to establish new programmes of applied health research.

Global Health Research Groups will be either new to delivering applied health research globally or wish to expand an existing partnership. Global Health Research Groups will address unmet global health needs through equitable research partnerships and must have Joint UK and LMIC Lead applicants, clear plans to strengthen research capacity and support future sustainability of research in partner countries.

All applications must have two Joint Lead Applicants (one at an eligible LMIC institution and one at an eligible UK institution).

Joint Lead Applicants will normally be researchers employed by a research institution, or a Higher Education Institution (HEI) or a not for profit organisation. Dependent on the nature of the partnership, there may be other affiliated Co-applicants (in addition to the two Joint Lead Applicants), and Collaborators including service level providers.

Funding amount: Up to £3 million over a period of up to 3 to 4 years

Deadlines:

  • Intent to Submit (Mandatory): 20 April 2021
  • Application: 18 May 2021
