NIHR Evidence Synthesis Incentive Awards Scheme

  Friday, 24 Sep 2021 | Funding Deadline

The NIHR 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 Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) in England funds an annual scheme whereby small incentive payments are offered to Cochrane Review Groups (CRGs) and Campbell Coordinating Groups (CCGs) for preparing key new or updated reviews by agreed dates. The DHSC recognises that these awards are insufficient to meet the full costs of conducting reviews. They are intended to be applied at the discretion of Coordinating Editors in ways that will facilitate and possibly accelerate activity that is already planned or underway i.e. post protocol publication.

Reviews must centre around a potential or applicable benefit to people in the NHS or social care. Review nominations not relevant to public health/people using the services/NHS/social care need or the wider UK healthcare system will not be successful.

 

Deadline for proposals: 24 September 2021
