Knowledge Mobilisation Research Fellowships (KMR Fellowships), from the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR), are designed to support a balance of innovative knowledge mobilisation and research into the processes and impacts of such innovation.
Through innovative practice and systematic study of that practice, KMR Fellows should advance knowledge and understanding about research use, influence and impact.
In order 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 may be providers or commissioners of NHS health services.
KMR Fellowships are personal awards designed to buy out an individual's salary costs, fund a training and development programme and fund the activities needed to complete an identified knowledge mobilisation research project.
Because applications are welcomed from individuals working on either side of the activity gap that this scheme aims to bridge, the specific experiences and competencies expected of the applicant are dependent on their background.
1.00pm, Thursday 14 August, 2014.
