The NIHR currently has five open calls on the theme of mental health with deadlines in late March/early April. These are:
Applications to the EME Programme may test interventions for the prevention, diagnosis or treatment of mental ill health, or the promotion of good mental health. Applications should examine the efficacy of interventions, and may explore the mechanisms underlying possible efficacy. Applications may investigate novel or repurposed interventions and technologies, but studies of incremental or minor improvements to existing technologies or the discovery of new biomarkers are not within the remit of the EME Programme.
The next round of Santander funding opens on Friday 12 January. Here you can apply for £500, £1,000 or £5000 to assist with travel costs for an international visit or project.
Further details, criteria and link to the application form can be found at:

The list of calls announced runs in the hundreds and therefore can seem to be overwhelming to navigate. In this post therefore, we wanted to provide a brief overview of the structure of the Work Programme, a selection of some of the calls that may be of particular interest to Salford academics, along with details of where to go to find out more and to search through all of the available opportunities.
The Horizon 2020 programme is structured into three main ‘pillars’ (Excellent Science, Industrial Leadership and Societal Challenges). Each of these pillars focuses on a different type of research & innovation action: bottom-up, curiosity-driven research (Excellent Science); applied and close-to-market research & innovation actions with an industry focus (Industrial Leadership); challenge-driven collaborative research & innovation actions addressing some of the grand themes affecting both the EU and the wider world (Societal Challenges). Within each pillar there are sub-categories, all of which have their own part of the Work Programme.
Please see below for a list of upcoming deadlines from funders of interest to researchers in CARe. Please note not only deadlines but also when calls opened, and be aware that it can take several months to develop a viable proposal.
All calls are included in the fortnightly Research Professional Bulletins soon after they open.
