NIHR’s newly-established Research Support Service will be available from 1st October 2023.

The NIHR Research Support Service (RSS) will operate nationally and provide researchers with free access to support, advice and expertise. It will replace the NIHR Research Design Service (RDS) and NIHR Clinical Trial Units (CTU) Support Funding.

RSS will be for all researchers in England working across NIHR’s remit, from pre- to post-application phases.
