    The National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) was established in 2006 and is funded through the Department of Health. It supports outstanding individuals working in world-class facilities, conducting leading-edge health research focused on the needs of patients and the public.

    The NIHR is holding a short-film competition (the NIHR New Media competition). NIHR researchers have been invited to create and submit short films about their research, with the aim of informing the public about the methods used, the results of the research and the opportunities it presents for the future.

    The entries to the competition, each about 5 minutes long, will be screened at Cafe Scientifique on Tuesday 1st April. We shall have the opportunity to discuss the films and judge which should be the winner, based on audience scorecards.
