Awards and Prizes
We now have multiple awards and prizes that will be presented as part of the programme at Anaesthesia Research and are now open to applicants:
The NIAA is pleased to re-open our Research Award for researchers/investigators that have completed a 'body of work', which will be open for applications until Monday 26 September 2022.
Applications will be reviewed by a panel of judges convened by the NIAA, and should be submitted as a summary of the applicant's research project/'body of work'. The judges will select a shortlist of applicants who will be invited to deliver a 10-minute presentation of their work in York as part of the Anaesthesia Research 2022 conference which takes place on 22-23 November 2022.
Shortlisted applicants must be available to attend the NIAA Research Award presentation session of Anaesthesia Research 2022 in York on 23 November 2022.
The overall winner will be selected by the judges and announced at the end of Day 2 of Anaesthesia Research on 23 November 2022.

The Royal College of Anaesthetists (RCoA) is pleased to resume three awards in conjunction with the National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) Clinical Research Network (CRN). The awards are designed to recognise NHS clinicians (consultants and anaesthetists in training) who are making outstanding contributions to clinical research, particularly in relation to NIHR CRN portfolio research studies. These awards will open for applications on 30th June 2022 and close at 23:59 on 26th September 2022.
Applicants must be NHS clinicians (clinical academics are not eligible) and must be a fellow or member of the College. Clinicians can enter under one of three categories:
Consultant (including SAS doctors)
Anaesthetist in training (individual)
Anaesthetists in training (network)
Applicants must outline their contribution, engagement or leadership of NIHR Clinical Research Network portfolio studies with particular focus in the following areas:
How you demonstrate clinical leadership or engagement to enable your organisation to increase its participation in NIHR CRN portfolio studies
How you engaged with patients to inform them of new opportunities to participate in NIHR CRN clinical research
Your contribution to the successful delivery of NIHR CRN portfolio studies.
Each award carries a £1,000 prize. There is a short application form to apply (see below). The awards are designed to recognise clinicians who engage in academic research alongside their clinical work, would not be typically 'research active' and may be in the early stages of their research career.
Awards will be presented during the Anaesthesia Research 2022 meeting in York, 22-23 November 2022. Winners will be expected to be present at the meeting for the award presentation, which will take place on 23 November. The cost of standard class travel, 1 night's accommodation and conference attendance for 23 November will be covered for the winners (1 attendee per category).
