Torbay Medical Research Fund provides grants for research which is being conducted within Torbay and South Devon that does not have any funding (own account), or where funds are not coming to the organisation you are working in.
The categories of research are:
- Health care
- Social care
- Public health & prevention
If you are not sure whether you project is research, the Health Research Authority has provided useful guidance as well as the National Institute for Health Research for health and service delivery research.
To apply for a research grant you will need to complete the:
- Grant application form
- Finance spreadsheet, with a breakdown of where the proposed funds will be spent
You will also need to include a brief summary CV – see grant application
This will need to be returned via email to : firstname.lastname@example.org .
The grant application and finance spreadsheet will be reviewed by a small team, including the Director of Research & Development, prior to submission to the Fund. This ensures that the application is complete, that it meets the criteria of the Fund and that any queries can be dealt with prior to presentation to the Fund.
Once this process has been completed, the applicant will be informed and they will be asked to attend the next Torbay Medical Research Fund meeting, providing a brief presentation of the research proposal.
The Fund meets three times a year and the submission dates for applications are published here.
If you have any questions contact the Fund via the email address or if you would like an informal conversation about your research proposal you can also contact Dr Fiona Roberts, the R&D Director.
