This call will open on Monday 1 August 2016

Deadline for applications to be submitted is 12pm (noon) on Monday 12 September 2016.

The Research Innovation Awards Scheme has replaced our previous Project & Pilots grant round to drive us forward in our bold new strategy. This call is for bold, innovative research that has the real potential to impact the way prostate cancer is diagnosed, treated or even prevented.

All proposals must align with our new research strategy and must clearly demonstrate the innovative nature of the research and how it will lead to improved health and wellbeing of men affected by, or at high risk of, prostate cancer. The application process and assessment of your proposal will reflect our increased focus on innovativeness and potential impact and you should make every effort to detail how your proposal meets those criteria.

The 2016 guidance notes for this scheme will be available the week before the scheme launches. Last year's notes are available below, but please note that some of the information in here is subject to change for the 2016 round.
