Funding and opportunities

Please note that all GOSH BRC's funding calls have been paused due to the current COVID-19 situation. Any applications received from now on will be held until we are in a position to agree new timelines for calls. No new awards will be made until further notice. We will update the website when schemes re-open. Information about future schemes may still be added in case people wish to prepare applications.

Information about funding calls, opportunities and job vacancies available across all NIHR GOSH BRC themes.

Before submitting an application we strongly advise that you read and understand the eligibility criteria for each of the respective funding opportunities. If you have any questions please email GOSH BRC. Please also note the following general points:

Grant funding is inclusive of VAT. The funding is allocated annually, and as per NHS financial regulations, each year’s funding must be spent within the financial year and completely invoiced by 20 March of that financial year. Any invoices received in the next financial year cannot be processed. Please note that no funds can be carried over. Each subsequent year’s funding is contingent on adherence to the terms and conditions.

For grant funding with the BRC’s main research themes, all applicants should update their cohorts metadata in the 2018 Rare Diseases Cohorts catalogue (please contact Dauda Bappa for a copy of the catalogue).

Expenditure will be reviewed quarterly and any underspend assessed. If there is a significant unjustified underspend by the final quarter of the financial year, the remaining funding will be retracted.
