Research In Your Career Award 

The Academy of Research and Improvement are committed to supporting individuals to get involved in research or develop research as part of their careers. We understand that it can be difficult to find the time and to know which direction to go in. To address this we are working in partnership with ARC Wessex/HEE and launching a new internship award offering individuals working in community settings and primary care within Hampshire and the Isle of Wight region (including peer researchers) the time and support to develop research opportunities in their work area. The award offers people or teams the chance to create a tailored development plan suited to their, and their team’s, needs and aspirations. 

All successful applicants must have support from their line manager or equivalent, and additional support from an academic or clinical/practitioner research mentor with appropriate experience to guide your development and support the award objectives (this person should be identified by you but please contact us if you need support identifying someone). The objectives of the award should align with your team/service/organisation priorities and any local needs.

As part of the award, you can include costs and time to undertake any training which will enable your development plans i.e., Good Clinical Practice (GCP) in research course, Principal Investigator (PI) training, online courses, or Masters in research modules.
