MRC Confidence in Concept
The MRC Confidence in Concept (CiC) is a block grant that can be used flexibly by a university to support a number of preliminary-stage translational projects.
The core purpose of the funding is to:
- Ensure that fundamental science is translated into new therapies, diagnostics and medical devices.
- Accelerate the transition from discovery science to the early stages of development by providing responsive and flexible funding to support preliminary translational work.
- Support preliminary-stage translational projects.
- Provide sufficient preliminary data to establish the viability of an approach before seeking more substantial funding
Please note there is no current open call for these funds at this time.
