CoRIPS research grants
College of Radiographers Industry Partnership Scheme Research Grants
Dates for 2017 funding applications:
- Friday 28 April
- Monday 2 October
As part of the College of Radiographers’ commitment to the implementation of the SCoR's new research strategy, the organisation is funding small grants for projects related to any aspect of the science and practice of radiography. Bids up to £5000 for small projects and up to £10,000 for one larger project.
Bids for funding exceeding these amounts will be considered. Matched funding or other institutional contributions would be advantageous.
The aim is to support at least one grant for someone who has little or no previous experience of undertaking research and development projects.
The final selection will be made by the SCoR Research Group and the College Board of Trustees. Feedback will be given to all who submitted a proposal. Successful projects will be assigned a named contact person from the SCoR. All completed projects will be listed on the Research section of the website.
The College will expect an interim and a final report for large projects and a final report only for the smaller projects.
Applicants will be notified the outcome of their bids within three months of application. Successful applicants will be given a final report date by which they must report to the College the outcome of their research. Final reports will be published on the SoR website. Researchers are encouraged to publish their work in Radiography or Imaging and Therapy Practice.
Please note: The Principal Investigator/applicant must be a radiographer and a member of the Society of Radiographers.
PLEASE NOTE THIS SCHEME DOES NOT SUPPORT UNIVERSITY FEES
Successful CoRIP's Research Grants
Angela Eddy, senior lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University, was one of three grant recipients. Her pioneering study explored the experiences of individuals undertaking education and training for role extension in therapy radiography.
"I saw the call for funding in Synergy News and for me, the timing was perfect,"explains Angela. "Receiving the grant brought forward my plans and gave me funding to buy some of my time out to undertake the research. Plus, it has allowed me to undertake some specific research training to support the data analysis part of the project.
Other awardees were Beverly Snaith, consultant radiographer, Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust, and University of Bradford lecturer, Maryann Hardy whose research focused on establishing a standard for radiographer commenting in the accident and emergency environment in the UK.
Sandra Mathers, research practitioner in radiography at Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen, received funding for her project X-Raying children: Identifying differences in practices between adult departments and dedicated childrens hospitals in Scotland.
