NIHR Knowledge Mobilisation Research Fellowship Programme

Round 6 is now open for applications.

The Programme

Knowledge Mobilisation Research Fellowships (KMRF) are designed to support a balance of innovative knowledge mobilisation and research into the processes and impacts of such innovation. Through innovative practice and systematic study of that practice KMR Fellows should advance knowledge and understanding about research use, influence and impact.

In order to support partnership working between Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) and publicly funded healthcare bodies (NHS organisations or other publicly funded organisations providing health or social care services, for example social enterprises or local authorities), applications must be supported by organisations from both of these different sectors.

KMR Fellowships are personal awards designed to buy out an individual’s salary costs, support the development of innovative knowledge mobilisation activity, and provide the resources necessary to undertake a research investigation of that knowledge mobilisation.

Because applications are welcomed from individuals currently working in either healthcare or academic organisations, the experience and competencies expected of the applicant are dependent on their background.

Further details, including full eligibility criteria, can be found in the relevant guidance notes for applicants. Prospective applicants are encouraged to read these guidance notes before contacting NIHR TCC with queries pertaining to the scheme or their application.

All applicants must ensure that their proposed research project is compatible with the published NIHR remit.
