Research & Development Grants

The aim of IPS Research Grants is to support high quality practice-based research and the growth of a research culture within the field of infection prevention and control.  A pool of up to £11,000 per annum is available to the IPS R&D committee to support small research grants.  Applications are encouraged from infection prevention and control practitioners at all career stages, ‘novice’ researchers without previous experience may apply provided an experienced research supervisor is named in the application.

The call for the research grants will be made every year with the closing date usually September time. However, if insufficient applications are received, then the IPS R&D committee will consider applications until the new awards are launched the following year (typically in June).
