Each NIHR ARC is made up of local providers of NHS services, local providers of care services, NHS commissioners, local authorities, universities, private companies and charities. These collaborations work together to conduct high quality, generalisable, applied health and care research that addresses the specific health or care issues in their region.
NIHR ARCs also act to close the second translational gap and increase the rate at which research findings are implemented into practice.
The 15 ARCs are:
|NIHR ARC North West London||NIHR ARC East Midlands||NIHR ARC Yorkshire and Humber|
|NIHR ARC West Midlands||NIHR ARC South London||NIHR ARC Greater Manchester|
|NIHR ARC East of England||NIHR ARC Wessex||NIHR ARC West|
|NIHR ARC North West Coast||NIHR ARC North Thames||NIHR ARC Oxford and Thames Valley|
|NIHR ARC Kent, Surrey and Sussex||NIHR ARC North East and North Cumbria|
The 15 ARCs work collaboratively to address national research priorities, with individual ARCs providing national leadership in their areas. You can find a list of the national priorities funding and collaborating ARCs here.
NIHR's mission is to improve the health and wealth of the nation through research. The NIHR was established in 2006 and is primarily funded by the Department of Health and Social Care.
Working in partnership with the NHS, universities, local government, other research funders, patients and the public, the NIHR delivers and enables world-class research that transforms people’s lives, promotes economic growth and advances science.
