NIHR Themed Calls: Mental Health

16 January 2018

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. read more

    Horizon 2020 Work Programme 2018-2020

    14 November 2017

    The Horizon 2020 Work Programme for 2018-2020, covering the final three years of the EU’s current research & innovation funding programme, was officially announced at the end of October. The Work Programme contains details of all of the proposed calls across all three pillars of Horizon 2020.

    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.

    Horizon 2020 Structure

    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. read more
