The National Institute for Health Research has today published its first diversity data report.

Covering the year 2020-21, these baseline data show a break down of the number of applicants and successful awardees for NIHR research and career development funding, and the profile of people on NIHR selection committees, according to the four protected characteristics of age, disability, ethnicity and sex.

It is the first annual collation of diversity data produced by the NIHR, following the introduction of an Equality and Data Reporting System in early 2020. It represents the benchmark against which the NIHR’s work to improve inclusion and diversity across its portfolio will be measured in the future.
