Research Managers and Administrators are invited to join us on Tuesday 23 February for a webinar on 'Funding partnerships for global health research'. Organised in partnership with the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) and the Association of Research Managers and Administrators, the webinar will provide insights into applying and managing NIHR grants.
The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) was established in 2006 to improve the health and wealth of the nation through research and is funded by the Department of Health and Social Care. In 2015, the NIHR Global Health Research portfolio was established to support applied health research for the direct and primary benefit of people in low and middle income countries (LMICs) using UK aid from the UK government.
NIHR currently has five programmes running open calls to award research funding to equitable partnerships between groups of researchers and institutions both in LMICs and the UK.
You can find out further information about the event on ARMA's website.
Who can attend?
Research Managers and Administrators from higher education and research institutions in the UK and in LMICs.
Speakers will include two research managers currently engaged in NIHR global health research partnerships, Dr Sarah Puddicombe, Assistant Director, Global Health Research, National Evaluation Trials Coordinating Centre, NIHR, and will be chaired by Sapna Marwaha, Director with responsibility for oversight of African capacity-building programme, ARMA.
