The NIHR, Evaluation, Trials and Studies (NETS) programmes, fund valuable independent research for health and social care decision makers. They are managed by the NIHR Evaluation, Trials and Studies Coordinating Centre (NETSCC), based at the University of Southampton. While some of the research programmes share common themes and complement each other, they each have different specialist funding remits.
The Efficacy and Mechanism Evaluation (EME) Programme evaluates research into the clinical efficacy of an intervention, where proof of concept in humans has already been achieved.
The Health Services and Delivery Research (HS&DR) Programme aims to produce rigorous and relevant evidence to improve the quality, accessibility and organisation of health services.
The Health Technology Assessment (HTA) Programme produces research information about the effectiveness, costs and broader impact of healthcare treatments and tests.
The Systematic Reviews (SR) Programme supports the production of systematic reviews to guide evidence-based decision making in health and social care.
