Confidence in Concept scheme – applications open

September 5th, 2019

Applications are still open for the 2019 Medical Research Council (MRC) funded Confidence in Concept scheme.

Administered by the University of Nottingham, the grants are designed to support discovery research to facilitate acceleration to early stage therapeutic and diagnostic development in any area of health. They offer funding to support preliminary work, or feasibility studies, which establish the viability of the approach.

Projects should aim to generate sufficient preliminary data to establish the viability of an approach before seeking more substantive translational funding, e.g. from the Developmental Pathway Funding Scheme (DPFS).

Applications are encouraged from all departments and faculties where project objectives are aligned with the MRCs remit, including applications that fit with the UoN and MRCs strategic priority areas.

A workshop was held on Tuesday 3 September and presentations from the day, containing details on how to apply and further guidance for submitting an application, are available on Workspace for those who missed this event.

The deadline for applications is 4pm on Friday 4 October.

For more information, and to submit your application, please visit the Confidence in Concept workspace webpages.
