Research Capability Funding

The Research Office administers Research Capability Funding (RCF) on behalf of the Norfolk and Waveney Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs). 

RCF is awarded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) to research active NHS organisations to enable them to maintain research capacity and capability. 

Would it help you if you could employ a Research Associate to support the development of your next grant application to the NIHR?

Applications are now open for RCF funding  to develop research proposals that align with identified areas of local need with national relevance.

You are strongly encouraged to contact Dr Judy Henwood, Research Design Lead on or 01603 257 187, to discuss your application prior to applying.
