RA-UK Project Grant


Up to £10,000

Closing date: noon, Friday 22 April 2022

Conditions and Information

RA-UK wishes to promote scientific study and the academic basis of the sub-specialty. We appreciate financial support is difficult to obtain for regional anaesthesia research, particularly for smaller studies.

The Support
The grant is intended to support research projects involving regional anaesthesia and may be used to contribute towards salaries (in which case, the employer is responsible for ensuring appropriate governance is in place) or for the purchase of items of equipment and consumable items.

The applicant will be required to submit an account of the project within 2 years of award payment.

Successful applicants will be asked to produce a first year and interim or final report for posting on the NIAA website, which will also be sent to RA-UK. Please note that applicants who do not submit their progress reports on time may not be permitted to apply for further funding until the outstanding report is provided.

It is also now a requirement to complete and submit the NIAA Grants EDI data capture form with your application. You can download this below.
