CLOSES 12th April 2023

The BRS is able to offer members funding towards research projects by way of a pump-priming grant. Grants are available on an annual basis and will be up to the value of £3000. As the BRS is a recognised partner of the NIHR, the successful research project will be automatically considered for inclusion on the NIHR National Portfolio when the ethics and R&D submission process is initiated.

Application forms will be considered by the BRS research group headed by Carl Philpott and the successful applicant(s) will be invited to present their research proposal at the BRS meeting in Glasgow in May. This year we will be re-introducing the 'Dragons Den' session to decide the eventual recipient, building on the success of the session in previous years.
