NIHR Evidence Synthesis Groups

  Monday, 14 Mar 2022 | Funding Deadline

The Evidence Synthesis Programme identifies, evaluates, combines and summarises information from a range of sources to provide decision makers with the best possible information about the effects of tests, treatments and other interventions used in health and social care.

The Evidence Synthesis Programme is accepting Stage 1 applications to this funding opportunity. The Evidence Synthesis Programme requires a range of evidence syntheses products. This will require a balance between research which will be of immediate use to the Departments of Health and Social Care, public health and key stakeholders/audiences across all four nations, alongside evidence which will contribute to building and enhancing world knowledge. All topics will take account of “Best Research for Best Health: The Next Chapter” and other evolving NIHR priorities.

The commissioned groups will have the necessary capabilities and capacity to produce evidence syntheses across all four nations in a wide range of research topics, relevant across healthcare, public health and social care. Key skills will include information science and retrieval expertise, critical appraisal, health economics and economic modelling, epidemiology and statistics and knowledge/understanding of evidence sources.

Deadline for proposals: 14 March 2022
