Organisation summary: NIHR Programme Grants for Applied Research (PGfAR) were established in 2006 to produce independent research findings that will have practical application for the benefit of patients and the NHS in the relatively near future. Nested within the PGfAR programme is the Programme Development Grants scheme. A recent initiative, its primary purpose is to allow investigators to undertake preparatory research that will position them to submit a competitive Programme Grant application. What will the Programme support? •Applied health research including health services research; public health research; behavioural research; economic evaluations; and modelling. •Delivering research findings that will have practical application for the benefit of patients, typically through improved health care or better health care delivery, within three to five years of a programme’s end. •Balanced teams of leading researchers, from the NHS and academia working together, who can demonstrate an impressive track record of achievement in applied health research. Individual programmes funded through a Programme Grant typically consist of an interrelated group of high quality projects focused on a coherent theme and hence require multidisciplinary approaches, including clinical, health economics, statistics, qualitative and behavioural sciences, to ensure that research objectives can be met.
