Research for Patient Benefit (RfPB) highlight notice: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease

  Monday, 16 Nov 2020 | Funding Deadline

The NIHR Research for Patient Benefit (RfPB) programme is inviting proposals for collaborative research projects to better understand and manage the health and social care consequences of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) under the COPD highlight notice. The call is particularly interested in populations in the North East of England (NE) where there is a high disease burden and which has been historically under-served by research activity.

The notice is open to researchers at all career stages from across England. NIHR are also keen to encourage fresh ideas from new researchers and appropriate proposals are welcomed from those with limited research experience (early career researchers) when supported by an experienced, strong and multi-disciplinary team. The call offers researchers considerable flexibility to focus on any subject area or topic providing that it falls within the COPD highlight notice remit.

The call is for proposals up to £350,000 for a period of up to three years, which should be submitted to Competition 45 under the highlight notice.

Potential applicants for the COPD highlight notice need to pre-register their interest. Registered participants will be invited to participate in a call launch event on 7th December 2020 followed by a series of parallel structured networking events the same day.
