The service has a particular focus on (but is not restricted to) National Institute for Health Research funding.

An Introduction to RDS & NIHR support at the University of Surrey.

Date: Thursday 9th June 2016
Time: 10.15am - 2.00pm
Venue: University of Surrey – 40 AA 03

The workshop will take place on Thursday 9th June between 10.15 and 2.00pm at the University of Surrey and will be aimed at all levels of academic and NHS researchers in the county of Surrey who would like to hear an up to date account of NIHR’s funding schemes, successful projects and support offered by the RDS team.

This promises to be a really useful workshop for everyone whose work could potentially be funded by the NIHR – but particularly with those of you who would like to hear more about the help and guidance offered by the RDS team.

The workshop will be led by Dr Bernadette Egan, Academic lead for the Research Design Service South East’s Surrey Site.

The programme for the morning will include:

  • An overview of NIHR
  • An overview of RDS and support provided by the team
  • NIHR funding opportunities and fellowships
  • Case studies/CRC talk (TBC)
  • Patient and Public Involvement
  • 1 to 1 sessions with a member of the RDS team (optional)

Individual sessions can be on a 1 to 1 basis or as a small group meeting. When applying for the 1 to 1 sessions please advise what it is you’re interested to discuss with the team. A time will be allocated to you on a first come, first serve basis and a session will last 20 minutes.
