The PublicHealth@Cambridge research Network ( is hosting a regional information workshop for potential applicants by the NIHR Public Health Research Programme team.

Visit for further information and to register your interest in attending.

The Public Health Research (PHR) Programme evaluates public health interventions, providing new knowledge on the benefits, costs, acceptability and wider impacts of non-NHS interventions intended to improve the health of the public and reduce inequalities in health. The scope of the programme is multi-disciplinary and broad, covering a range of interventions that improve public health and the wider determinants of public health. The programme uses a very wide interpretation of public health. Research funded to date is concerned with the health impacts of interventions under each of the major local authority service areas: education, adult and children’s social care, transport, housing, culture, environment, planning and democratic services. In addition, all of the prescribed and non-prescribed areas of local government public health responsibilities are within the programme’s remit.

The aim of this workshop is to enable researchers from a wide range of disciplines to explore the research funding opportunities available through the PHR programme. As well as going through how the programme works (e.g. how research is commissioned and funding decisions made) and exploring current funding opportunities, it will look at features of a successful application, based on the 60 or so research projects funded to date.
