SRIP Funding

SRIP Research Development Workshop Grant Guidelines

Scope of funding: The Society wishes to support activities that foster multidisciplinary research, research impact, knowledge mobilisation, and professional practice. We offer funding for workshops or other events that further this goal. Events could include, but are not limited to:

  • A workshop to bring research collaborators together to develop a grant proposal
  • A one-off event to disseminate research in a specific area
  • An event to deliver or plan research impact with non-academic stakeholders
  • A research-led training event to support evidence-based practice

Funding: The Society will provide up to £1,500 to cover room hire, travel and accommodation for participants and other small incidental costs. Costs will be reimbursed through a University or other appropriate organisation. The organisers of funded workshops will be required to supply accounts of the monies spent and a brief factual report of the workshop within 4 months of the event. Applications for matched funding or contribution to full costs are also welcomed.

Applications: Applications can be made at any time by completing the application form. The applicants must include at least one SRIP member. Although all applications will be considered on their merits, the following workshops are most likely to be successful:

  • Dealing with topics that are important both academically and clinically in psychological and socio-cultural aspects of reproduction, birth and infancy
  • Involve a number of speakers/participants
  • Involve participants from a number of different Universities, NHS Trusts or other organisations with some geographical spread
  • Multidisciplinary, involving clinical or other professional practitioners as well as academic participants or other stakeholders
  • Have clear outputs - e.g. a grant proposal, consensus statements, plans for impact resources, acadmic or other paper

Applications should indicate:

  • The topic, dates and location of the workshop.
  • Its organisers and proposed participants and their professional and institutional affiliations (or organisation in the case of non-University stakeholders). Please indicate which organisers/participants are members of SRIP.
  • Costings to a maximum of £1,500 to be met by the Society.
