Information for grant applicants
Last year we redefined our purpose and agreed a new strategic focus to 2020 to improve the quality of life of people with arthritis so that they can say, “I am in control, independent and recognised”.
Our ambition is to transform the lives of people with arthritis whilst continuing to fund ground breaking research aimed at preventing the onset of arthritis and developing a cure for arthritis. To achieve this, we're transforming the scope of our research investment and adopting a new approach to funding, including changes to our committees and new areas of research investment.
More information can be found in our new approach to research funding announcement. Over the coming months, these pages will be updated to reflect the changes as more information becomes available.
Please check our application deadline page for calls that are currently open and keep up to date with the latest research news and information through our News for researchers.
