Description:
The real increase in health research funding provided by the Department of Health in 1994 enabled the Board to generate major significant new research activity as follows: A large scale (£35,000 per annum) Primary Health Care Research Project Grant- a first major initiative in this important area of the Board's research remit. A Health Services Research Project was widely advertised and, following initial declaration of interest, a modified format for this project grant was devised and readvertisement was decided to attract even more competitive applications. Plans were set in train to phase in a significant number of new Research Units and these will be selected later in the year following an extensive and rigorous peer review assessment. The number of standard research project grants showed a significant increase from 44 in the previous year to 61 this year leading to the employment of 17 additional research scholars which will ensure the retention of our most talented graduates who would otherwise emigrate. The outstanding success of the Post-Doctoral Research Fellowships prompted further major reinvestment in this area and the number of Fellowships was doubled from four to eight with a further two additional Fellowships being supported by a generous bequest from a private benefactor. The experienced personnel recruited for these high prestige positions is a further reflection of the significant impact the HRB can make with relatively modest additional funding. The first awards for advanced training in Nursing Research were made under the Board's Post Graduate Training Grants Scheme emphasising the desire of the Board to substantially promote research in nursing and other areas where health professionals can make a major contribution to the national research effort. The demand for research support continued to grow as evidenced by a 35% increase in applications for the Board's Research Project Grants.
