Submitting an outline research proposal

If you would like to prepare (or have been encouraged to prepare) an Outline Research Proposal for a research project, please use the form below. You can complete this on line and forward to us using the Submit button. Alternatively you contact us on

You will receive acknowledgement of receipt of your Outline Proposal which will be allocated an ‘ORP’ (Outline Research Proposal) number. Your Proposal will be considered by the NHBC Foundation as soon as possible, and responses offered usually within 6 to 8 weeks of receipt

We appreciate that preparing an Outline Proposal can take time. As an alternative, you can simply write to us, briefly setting out your research idea (see Submit a Research Idea): this can be a useful preliminary step to gauge support for a particular research topic.
