It will offer an opportunity for researchers and those involved in promoting and preparing NIHR RfPB bids to gain a greater understanding of the renewed programme. It will provide information about the changes to the programme and the types of proposals that NIHR is keen to encourage.

The event will not be a forum for detailed methodological discussions, but there will be opportunity to network with presenters, RDS advisers and other delegates.

Registration is free and lunch is provided. The event will take place in Durham.

For further information see the RDS NE website.
