HeRC’s Public Involvement and Engagement Small Projects Scheme

***Coming soon – details about the next call***

HeRC has allocated funding to support small public involvement and engagement projects.  It is expected that 2-4 small projects will be funded per year (maximum of £7,500 per project, usually less than £5,000).

The panel is looking for projects related to health informatics that are well aligned with the objectives of HeRC and/or HeRC themes.


This is internal funding and thus the scheme is open to any members of HeRC or the HeRC themes, at any of the collaborating centres.  At least one lay member must be a co-applicant.  Please see the guidance notes for further information on who can apply, the application process and assessment criteria.
