All grant applications for external research and innovation funding will be collected via a spreadsheet and approved via email. The data and files will be stored on ShareDrive and the application data will be used for both individual and institutional reports, and for informing policy.

In addition, the Research Design Service (RDS) can help you with health and social care research applications. The RDS is funded by the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR). There are RDS advisers based at Kent, and they can provide free, confidential advice if you are applying to the NIHR or other national peer reviewed funding programmes.
