The Intensive Care Society Research Prioritisation Exercise 2022

The aim of the Society's Research Prioritisation Exercise is to identify and pump-prime a future large UK multicentre clinical trial, with the support and involvement of Society members, our Research Division, SOA delegates, and the wider UK critical care community. 

Research is a collaborative effort, and we strongly encourage groups of investigators (rather than single individuals) to apply for this award to ensure the needed skill mix is available.  We will also prioritise applications where there is a clear career development/leadership opportunity for a developing investigator. 
The successful proposal may cover any health problem within critical care and will be awarded up to £50K for development and to be put toward securing a larger external grant.  Shortlisted proposals will receive support and mentoring from the Society's Directors of Research ahead of presentation and judging at State of the Art 2022, where the winning project will be selected.

The Intensive Care Society & NIHR Clinical Research Awards 2022

The Intensive Care Society, in partnership with the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), is pleased to announce the new ICS and NIHR Clinical Research Awards 2022. 

These awards are designed to recognise and celebrate those making outstanding contributions to clinical research, particularly in relation to NIHR Clinical Research Network (CRN) portfolio research studies from all professions in intensive care.  

We are keen to hear from applicants who have championed and proactively supported research 

What is the award?
We are offering two awards of £2,000 to recognise contribution, engagement and leadership in academic research from staff within UK Intensive Care.

Applications open on 7 February 2022 and close on 31 March 2022.

The winners of this award will be announced at the 2022 State of the Art Congress in Belfast.

Applications are encouraged from all critical care staff who do NOT hold a substantive academic appointment. 

Applicants must outline their contribution, engagement, or leadership of NIHR CRN portfolio studies with particular focus in the following areas:

  • how you demonstrate clinical leadership or engagement to enable your organisation to increase its participation in NIHR CRN portfolio studies
  • how you engaged with patients and relatives to inform them of new opportunities to participate in NIHR CRN clinical research
  • your contribution to the successful delivery of NIHR CRN portfolio studies
