  13. Good Applications • 1. Know the process and the remit: • ● Look at the Website www.nihrtcc.nhs.uk • ● Read the Guidance Notes • ● Then contact the NIHR TCC if any queries • 2. Help: • ● Expert research support staff within the organisation (finance...) • ● Internal peer review, Mock panel • ● Research Design Service • ● Other websites, other applications and peer review comments

  14. Good Applications • 3. Time and checking: • ● Give yourself enough time – you must meet the deadline • ● Are all the questions answered? • ● Clear language, grammar, spelling. Do the references in text match • the list? • 4. Collaborations, training and support: • ● Have the appropriate multidisciplinary involvement in the research & supervisory team • ● Must have a clear career vision, training plan and support

  15. Good Applications • Applications are assessed on: • Applicant • Research • Training and Development • Environment / Supervision • Value for Money • Common Weaknesses • 1) Failure to show that research addresses important areas for the NHS and will produce results that are likely to generate significant and quantifiable benefit for NHS patients within 5 years of the funding period. • 2) Research questions not clear; don’t show the relevance of the aims and objectives. Unrealistic or failure to justify budget and requested resources. • 3) Training programme too generic and not suited/specific to the project
