Round 2

On Wednesday 18th February the NIAA Grants Committee met to consider the second round of 2008 applications for funding on behalf of Anaesthesia/Association of Anaesthetists of Great Britain and Ireland (AAGBI), The British Journal of Anaesthesia/Royal College of Anaesthetists (BJA/RCoA) and The Anaesthetic Research Society (ARS).

We considered 20 applications over four categories for a requested sum of £424K and made four awards to a value of £115K. Success rate: 20%. As a consequence of the more streamlined joint funding round there was some movement of grants between funding partner categories.
