What will happen from here – building a Valid Application Pack

Our facilitators will help you gain governance and ethical approvals, through a valid application pack, built using the Integrated Research Application System (IRAS) form, a web-based research application system that provides a single interface, accelerating approval.

Key benefits of working with our facilitators and the IRAS include single sign-off on NHS site’s  permission for multi-centre studies, and access to free study support (research nursing, support service costs etc.) through adoption of the study to the NIHR portfolio – find out more:
