PPI in the Joint Funding Scheme
PPI is integrated throughout the Joint Funding Scheme (see the tabs on the left for more about this scheme). There are specific questions set out in the application form on PPI. In addition, at the Review Panel meeting, PPI is reviewed in the applications and a PPI rating contributes to the consensus panel score. It is therefore important to think about PPI from the very start of planning a research project and submitting an application to the Joint Funding Scheme.
HRCI has produced two case studies of PPI excellence in Joint Funding Scheme applications. These applications received a very high PPI rating in the 2019-2020 round of the scheme and the case studies outline the PPI plans and activities the applicant teams had laid out. You can read them below and we thank the applicants and the HRCI members that they submitted their proposals to, for allowing us to share their excellent plans.
