Better methods, better research: Nov 2021

Funding is available to researchers at eligible organisations to support research which aims to improve the research methods being applied by others anywhere within the remit of MRC or the NIHR. Applicants are encouraged to learn from others where possible, and applications from multidisciplinary teams or approaches are welcome.

Projects that can be funded include:

  • research into underpinning methodologies that extend beyond a single case study or application
  • development of methods to understand research standards and drive improvements in quality
  • research that increases the implementation and adoption of optimal methodologies (by methodologists and/or non-methodologists)
  • research that makes the outputs of biomedical/health research more useful to others (across scales, experimental approaches, systems, disciplines or translational pathways).

Funding is available for 80% of the full economic cost of your research to your institution.
