The changes, that will take effect from May include:

  • Introducing quarterly deadlines.
  • Increasing the minimum amount we award to £25,000.
  • The criteria will change to reflect our new outcomes-led approach. Proposals will be expected to address at least one of Wellcome's three key aims to; empower people, so that more people can access, use, respond to and participate in health research and innovation; improve health research by making it more people-centred, understanding people’s experience and drawing on that knowledge; help people value and think critically about science, health research, innovation and the role these play in society.
