Booking an appointment
How do I arrange an appointment with the RDS?
Please contact us as early as possible in the development of your research proposal, although we will offer advice at any stage. Our RDS advisers are happy to meet you at a convenient time and place to discuss your research and, where required, offer ongoing support to help you to finalise your grant application. RDS staff may also agree to become collaborators on your research project, but this is not always necessary or possible.
Complete our request advice form and we will be in touch to arrange an appointment. Please provide as much information as possible on the form as this the helps us to make sure that you see an adviser with the relevant research expertise for your study.
Our first meeting section will tell you what to expect and suggest things to think about before the meeting.
We also offer support through:
- Workshops, seminars and presentations covering topics such as development of a grant or fellowship application or how to involve members of the public in your research. Find out more about our next workshop.
- Tailored presentations about our work and the different NIHR funding streams. If you are interested please contact us.
