Translational Training Allowance

To provide the opportunity for existing BHF award holders and salaried staff to develop skills that will accelerate the translation of research to patient benefit.

Accelerating the translation of research

Current BHF award holders can apply for funding of up to £2,000 for either themselves or staff funded on the grant to attend a course to develop non-scientific skills they consider beneficial for translating their research.

The award has a broad remit and BHF will consider any course that the applicant can justify as beneficial to the translation of their research. For example, it could be used to develop project management skills or to learn how to undertake a market assessment.

Eligibility criteria:

  • The applicant must hold a BHF award that is active on the date(s) of the course.
  • Only one application can be made per BHF grant.

The applicant must provide details of the course and an explanation of how it will benefit the translation of their research.

There are no deadlines for applications, though they should be received at least 4 months before the date of the course. The applicant will be notified of the result within 2 weeks and if successful the grant holding institution should submit a claim for reimbursement within 6 months folowing the course including receipts and quoting ref TTA.
