On behalf of Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and Professor Stephen Peckham, we are pleased to announce a funding call to support applied health research specifically for COVID-19 response projects across the Applied Research Collaboration Kent, Surrey and Sussex (ARC KSS).

This funding call is for COVID-19 response projects that show the potential to change practice for the benefit of the public, patients, service users and/or service providers.

Projects should involve an intervention or new way of providing care in the current COVID-19 environment, have a focus on implementation and within timescales relevant to the COVID-19 response, initiated rapidly and make a difference in the short term with the ability to feed in useful or partial findings within a three-month timeframe.

Longer term evidence might support continued use of interventions beyond the current situation to benefit services.  Projects should aim to start at the beginning of June.

To submit an application:
