“The unique local collective approach at each NIHR applied research collaboration will support applied health and care research that responds to, and meets, the needs of local patients, and local health and care systems.
The network will also be able to tackle health priorities at a national level.
The 15 new NIHR applied research collaborations will ensure that we grow applied health and care research in every region in England.
The additional funding announced today means we will ensure that our world-leading research is turned into real benefits for patients to ensure the applied research collaborations work together to have national-level impact”.
