Funding Opportunities

Trials are typically a major financial investment, and as a result securing funding can be a lengthy process. Major funders will need to be assured that the proposed research is important and addresses a clear need, well designed, feasible and scientifically valid, and offers value for money. Researchers are also likely to be asked by their funder to demonstrate commitment to involving patients and the public in their team. The time required to secure funding should be considered in wider development and planning activity, and many funders publish timetables for funding opportunities to assist with this task. The NWSTC can assist you with applying for funding opportunities and costing the research. However, they should be consulted as early as possible during the proposal design phase to provide as much assistance possible.
