About the NETSCC Management Information System

NETSCC’s Management Information System (MIS) is an integrated way for applicants, reviewers, and panel and board members to interact with NETS programmes. 

There is plenty of help and support available in using the new MIS, and the feedback from users is increasingly positive; helping to shape future enhancement of the system. This MIS, when fully implemented, will manage all stages of the research pathway, including topic identification.

The MIS is designed to enable NETS programmes to target, fund, plan and co-ordinate research more effectively, contributing to the achievement of NIHR objectives. In the future this will join up with other IT developments across NIHR. An initial step is the recent adoption of the Standard Application Form across all NIHR funding programmes, providing a consistent approach and experience to applying for NIHR funding and managing applications.

Research applicants

Research applicants must use the NETSCC MIS to submit their application for funding using the new NIHR Standard Application Form.  

The Standard Application Form is different to the form you may have used for previous applications, so please familiarise yourself with it before starting your application. An example is available on the funding pages and guidance notes on completing the form are available for each call.

Other review tasks (such as reviews of research briefs) will be managed using the NETSCC MIS from later.
