New AAGBI/Anaesthesia Research Grants

The Association of Anaesthetists of Great Britain & Ireland and Anaesthesia will be awarding research grants in February 2015.

Priority will be given to proposals that support the Associations' research aims:

  • Patient safety
  • Innovation
  • Clinical outcomes
  • Education and training
  • Related professional issues (e.g. standards and guidelines, working conditions, medico-legal issues)
  • The environment

On this occasion the AAGBI wishes to offer particular support to projects that address the research ideas identified by NAP5.

Applications must describe how the proposed project meets the above aims. Suitable projects may be large research studies, small clinical/benchtop projects, idea (innovation) development, observational studies/data collection, quality improvements or clinical audits (although the latter are unlikely to receive AAGBI funding if they are small, 'routine' local audits). Funding up to £50,000 may be sought, but applications will be judged on 'value-for money' as well as scientific credibility. Awards will be made via the NIAA and, if appropriate, will be eligible for NIHR portfolio status.

Applications will be reviewed by a small group consisting of members of the Research & Grants committee and external assessors based on declared research interests.

The deadline for applications is 5pm Friday 16 January 2015 and application details can be found here.
