FICM/NIHR Research Awards 2022 now open

Published 04/10/2021

Since its inception in 2006, the NIHR has significantly increased the scale of clinical research in the NHS, particularly through the Clinical Research Network. The enthusiastic engagement of NHS clinicians is an essential condition for sustaining and building on this success, particularly given the many competing demands on clinician time and resources. These awards recognise the contributions of NHS doctors conducting research alongside their normal jobs.

We are pleased to announce for a fifth year, the joint Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine and NIHR Clinical Research Network research awards for their Fellows, Members and trainees are open.

Eligibility and applying

You do not need to have been awarded large grants before – we are more interested in what you have done and what your future plans are, and these are the criteria we will use to choose the award winners. We are particularly interested in hearing from researchers who have not received large awards in the past, and who are conducting research without the benefit of dedicated time in their contracts.
