The NIHR Trainees Coordinating Centre (NIHR TCC) has launched the NIHR Knowledge Mobilisation (KM) Fellowship Scheme.
Knowledge Mobilisation Fellowships are personal awards designed to; buy out an individual's salary costs, fund a training and development programme, and the activities needed to complete an identified knowledge mobilisation project.
NIHR Knowledge Mobilisation Fellowships are open to people with significant NHS and / or academic experience who can demonstrate potential to assemble research knowledge within healthcare settings.
To encourage partnership working between the NHS and higher education institutions, applications must be supported by at least two organisations from these different sectors. NHS organisations can be providers, or commissioners, of NHS health services.
Applications for KM Fellowships will be assessed in four areas:
- suitability and potential of the candidate to lead and champion knowledge mobilisation
- quality of the proposal to engage with NIHR research and increase the effectiveness of knowledge mobilisation within healthcare settings
- quality of the proposal to engage in local knowledge mobilisation activities
- support to be afforded by local health care organisations and the proposed partnerships with academia
The deadline for the first round of applications is by 5pm on Wednesday 4 July 2012.
