HTMR Network project funding and workshop grants

To Improve Health by Improving Trials, we support various capacity building and funding initiatives. The Network provides small project funding through collaborative grants to support research, training and workshops. Applicants are encouraged to discuss project ideas with their Hub Director. Projects must illustrate a clear collaboration between at least two Hubs. Full details of terms and conditions, and guidance for completing the application form can be found below.

In this final round of HTMR Network funding we are looking for projects that can start quickly and and could potentially strengthen a future HTMR Network bid.

We would be particularly interested in applications which fall within or link with the following areas:

  • Health Informatics  
  • Stratified Medicine
  • Global Health
  • Industry

However we will also consider applications that fall outside these areas.

The next deadline will be Monday 18th September 2017 (10am BST).
