The NIHR has launched a new BRC competition inviting NHS and university partnerships to bid for funding from April 2017. Funding for current BRCs expires in March 2017.

As part of a two-stage competition, we are required to submit a pre-qualification questionnaire by 15 February 2016. These will be subject to an International Selection Panel review in April, with shortlisted applicants invited to submit a full application for funding by 6 June 2016.

Full applications will be reviewed in July, when interviews will also take place. Funding decisions will be announced in September
