Understanding PCORI Funding Applications: A Workshop for Success


This half-day workshop sought to equip potential PCORI applicants with strategies for success in applying for PCORI funding and conducting PCORI-funded awards. Attendees could engage in both didactic and interactive sessions, with opportunities to meet with PCORI staff on individual and group interests, as well as hear from successfully funded PCORI awardees. Key topics that were covered during breakout sessions, below, included understanding PCORI Funding Announcements (PFAs), developing a strong engagement plan, and developing effective Letters of Intent.

The primary focus of this workshop was on applications for funding for comparative clinical effectiveness research (CER), although some content also provided insights on special considerations for other types of PCORI funding opportunities.
