The NIHR Knowledge Mobilisation Research Fellowships (KRM Fellowships) will be launching a new round of programme funding, with applications available for submission between 20th July and 15th September.
Now in its fifth year, the programme is designed to support a balance of innovative knowledge mobilisation and research into the processes and impacts of such innovation. Through innovative practice and systematic study of that practice, KMR Fellows will advance knowledge and understanding about research use, influence and impact.
KMR Fellowships are personal awards designed to buy out an individual's salary costs, fund a training and development programme and fund the activities needed to complete an identified knowledge mobilisation research project.
Prior to the opening date for applications, a one hour live webinar will be held on 7th July at 11am by the NIHR Trainees Coordinating Centre (TCC). The session will provide an opportunity for attendees to send questions to the speakers and will also cover:
- An overview of Knowledge Mobilisation and the NIHR Knowledge Mobilisation Fellowship Programme
- Eligibility requirements of the programme
- Previous applications
- Things to consider before applying for the award (hints and tips)
Attendees are encouraged to send their questions for the webinar in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject: ‘KMRF Programme webinar questions’.
