Research Funding Scheme
EPILEPSY IRELAND REGRETS THAT THERE WILL BE NO CALL FOR PROPOSALS IN 2014.
This is as a result of the postponement by HRB for one year of the HRB/ MRCG Joint Funding scheme, through which successful Epilepsy Ireland proposals are co-funded. The Scheme will re-open in 2015.
In the meantime, we would like to hear from researchers applying for the Health Research Board HRA's with a view to collaborating on research proposals. Future HRA calls will promote active public involvement in all funded research, including patients, carers, service users as well as organisations that represent service users. 'Public involvement' represents an active partnership between members of the public and researchers in the research process. This can include involvement in the choice of research topics, assisting in the design, advising on the research project or in carrying out the research.
