Find funding

Helping you explore sources of funding 
Following the production of an Evidence Development Strategy we will work with you to develop the studies that meet your objectives, timelines, and fit your budget.  

There are a range of potential sources to fund studies and we can advise which would be the most appropriate to apply to, depending upon the aim of the study, timing, and amount of funding required. 

Examples of funding sources include:
  • NIHR funding programmes
    • Efficacy and Mechanism Evaluation(EME)
    • Health Technology Assessment (HTA)
    • Invention for Innovation (i4i)
    • Research for Patient Benefit (RfPB)
  • Technology Strategy Board
    • Biomedical Catalysts Programme (with MRC)
    • Innovation Vouchers
    • Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI)
    • Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs)
    • Smart
  • Wellcome Trust
  • Academic Health Science Network (AHSN)
  • Charities
The DEC works closely with the NIHR Regional Design Service North East (RDS NE) in developing applications for NIHR programmes and other peer reviewed sources of funding.
