Applications are invited for MRC Confidence in Concept 5 support in the second call of 2017. This funding aims to accelerate the transition from discovery research to translational development projects by supporting preliminary work or feasibility studies to establish the viability of an approach.
The remaining £400k of CiC5 funding will be allocated in a two-stage application process involving an expression of interest round, deadline Thursday 28 September 2017 at midday, followed by a full application round by invitation only, deadline Friday 17 November 2017. The fund welcomes expressions of interest from across the University, with a particular interest in interdisciplinary projects. Matching funding at least equal to ask is required and industrial match is especially encouraged. The CiC5 remit includes provision for GCRF-eligible proposals of primary relevance to LMICs. Application is online via the Internal Research Award Management System (IRAMS). Please direct all questions to firstname.lastname@example.org
