3 Introduction On behalf of the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), the NIHR Trainees Coordinating Centre (TCC) is launching the sixth round of NIHR Clinical Trials Fellowships. The NIHR through its various national research programmes ( commissions new research of direct relevance to the NHS. Many of these studies involve clinical trials. The conduct and execution of well-designed trials requires partnership with clinicians, other trialists and methodologists and ideally builds on the experience, expertise and infrastructure provided by Clinical Trials Units (CTUs). Clinical Trials Fellowships (CTFs) are designed to support existing NIHR trainees with an interest in, and experience of, working with clinical trials as part of their current training award who would benefit from further training within the setting of a CTU (in receipt of NIHR CTU Support Funding). The training programme should expose the trainee to all aspects/stages of trials and should not limit individuals to one study. These guidance notes are intended to help individuals and CTUs who are eligible to apply for a NIHR CTF complete an application. New Application Process Please note all applications for this round must be made using TCCi, which can be accessed via These guidance notes must be read in full in order to complete this process. Eligibility NIHR CTFs are open to existing NIHR trainees in partnership with CTUs in receipt of NIHR CTU Support Funding. Applications should be submitted jointly by the CTU and the trainee. NIHR trainees must: Hold one of the following awards at the time of application: NIHR Doctoral Research Fellowship (DRF) NIHR Postdoctoral Fellowship (PDF) NIHR Career Development Fellowship (CDF) NIHR Clinical Lectureship (CL) (part of NIHR s Integrated Academic Training Programme, including NIHR recognised locally-funded CLs) NIHR Clinician Scientist Award HEE/NIHR Integrated Clinical Academic Programme Clinical Doctoral Research Fellowship (ICA CDRF) HEE/NIHR Integrated Clinical Academic Programme Clinical Lectureship (ICA CL) NIHR Clinical Academic Training Clinical Doctoral Research Fellowship (CAT CDRF) NIHR Clinical Academic Training Clinical Lectureship (CAT CL) NIHR Healthcare Scientist Doctoral Research Fellowship (HCS DRF) NIHR Healthcare Scientist Postdoctoral Research Fellowship (HCS PDF) Be involved in a clinical trial as part of their training award; and 3

4 Have continued support from their employing organisation for the duration of the fellowship (this may or may not be the same as the institution that hosts the CTU). Applicants undergoing medical or dental specialty training must also have permission from their Postgraduate Dean for time out of their training programme. CTUs must: Be based in England; and Be in receipt of NIHR CTU Support Funding, with at least one year of their current contract in force at the deadline for submission of an application. Individual CTUs may be involved with up to two separate applications per round, supporting different trainees. Scope NIHR CTFs provide 6 months dedicated time (or 8 months part-time at 75% Whole Time Equivalent (WTE) or 10 months part-time at 60% WTE) for the trainee to undertake activities that expose them to a range of clinical trials and studies. NIHR is looking for innovative proposals that expose trainees to all aspects and stages of clinical trials and studies and should not limit the individual to a single project where they would only see one stage in depth. Training programmes should provide trainees with hands on experience that considers the issues involved in the design, conduct, analysis, and interpretation of all trials (including public health based research). NIHR expects trainees to demonstrate clearly how they would draw on their existing NIHR-funded research and how this additional training would support their future career either as a clinical trials collaborator or principal investigator. Funding Each NIHR CTF will attract full cost of employment (including National Insurance, Superannuation and London Weighting where appropriate) for the trainee for the 6 month period plus costs to support their clinical trial training activities (capped at 5,000 for each award). Up to 80% of Full Economic Costs (FEC) will also be paid to Higher Education Institutions. Fellows will need to start the fellowship between 1 January 2018 and 1 March 2019, subject to the CTU having continuing NIHR CTU Support Funding in place for the duration of the fellowship. Management Successful NIHR CTFs will be required to submit a progress report at the end of the fellowship to NIHR TCC. The host organisation is also required to submit a financial reconciliation following completion of the award. Application Procedure All CTUs in receipt of NIHR CTU Support Funding will be contacted and invited to participate in the round. Details of participating CTUs will be available on the NIHR website. 4

Whilst allowances for incremental increases should be included on the form, nationally or locally agreed pay increases should be excluded. Further itemisation of costs and methods of calculation may be requested to support the application at a later date. Appropriate sub-contracts must be put in place for any element of the research which is to be paid to another organisation. All applications are expected to have appropriate NHS or HEI input into the finance section of the application form. The finance section must be completed by the Lead Applicant in conjunction with the Research Support Office or Finance Office at the host organisation. The host employer institution is the organisation that authorised the application and which, in the event of an award being made, will employ the Lead Applicant. For HEIs in particular this is the individual who is authorised to assist with, and approve, the financial costing of proposals. Lead Applicants must make a copy of these guidance notes available to the Finance Officer in question. The funding requested in the finance section will form the basis of the fellowship should the application be successful.

15 Information on different types of employing organisations Please ensure that you select the correct employing/host organisation from the Type of Cost drop down menu as this impacts the level of funding provided. Staff employed by a HEI are funded at 80% of cost, and staff employed by NHS, Commercial or Other Partner Organisations at up to 100% of cost. HEIs HEIs should determine FEC of their research using the Transparent Approach to Costing (TRAC) methodology. For HEIs, up to 80% of FEC will be paid, provided that TRAC methodology has been used. NHS Organisations For applications where the contractor (employing host) is an NHS organisation, up to 100% of direct costs will be paid. Completing the finance section All costs must be provided at current prices; an adjustment for inflation will be made annually thereafter at rates set by the Department of Health. Whilst allowances for incremental increases should be included on the form, nationally or locally agreed pay increases should be excluded. All applications are expected to have appropriate host organisation input into the finance section of the application form. Staff Current Salary and Proposed Salary Salaries in this section should be listed at 100%, even for those not working 100% WTE. i.e. this should be the full current staff cost independent of %WTE. This section presents an overview of salary costs for the Lead Applicant, including normal salary increments. Please state the current and proposed salary point and scale at the start of the fellowship. No additional increments should be included, and immediate promotion to a higher grade as a result of securing a fellowship will not be funded. Please do not include any Clinical Excellence or Discretion/Merit awards or discretionary points. NIHR agrees to fund consultant salaries at a full-time rate equivalent to 10 Programmed Activities per week. Fellowship Costs Salary Costs This section specifies the annual costs of the Lead Applicant. You should now allocate Lead Applicant costs to each year of the research, allowing for increments. Use current rates of pay, and build in any known annual increments (again at current rates). You will not be able to claim for increments retrospectively. Lead Applicant staff costs should be broken down into basic salary, National 15

16 Insurance, superannuation, and geographical weighting. A copy of the pay scales for the host institution must be uploaded in this section of the application. It is important to double check that the %, total months and yearly costs information are consistent with the information presented in the Proposed Salary, which should show the full current staff costs independent of % WTE, whereas the yearly costs in this section depend on % WTE. Training and Development All costs in this section will be met at 100% for HEI and NHS organisations. Please itemise and describe fully the costs associated with training and development. The CTF training programme: Please list the costs associated with supporting the fellow s clinical trial training activities (up to 5,000). HEI Indirect Costs Estates Charges & Other Indirect Costs Total HEI indirect costs must be fully justified. HEIs are permitted to claim estate and other indirect costs. These costs are calculated on the basis of TRAC methodology. Proposals from other types of institutions/organisations should leave this section blank. HEI indirect costs are based on the number of full-time equivalent research staff working on the research and the indirect/estates charges set by an institution. The applicant(s) should consult their HEI finance departments for the appropriate figures to include in the estate charges and other indirect cost sections. SUMMARY OF COSTS NIHR programmes currently fund: HEIs at a maximum of 80% FEC. NHS organisations at 100% of direct costs. Commercial/other partner organisations at 100% FEC. Please note that whilst these percentages will be used to calculate the maximum grant payable, the programme reserves the right to award a grant for less than this maximum where it is considered appropriate. Trainees and host institutions should note that by authorising and submitting an application they accept the process by which an application is assessed and agree to abide by the conditions under which an award may be offered. 16
