CiC Funding Project Support
MRC Confidence In Concept awards are intended 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.
Since 2014 LD3 has received seven rounds of MRC Confidence In Concept awards, which represents a valuable source of pump-prime funding for academics at the University of Leicester to initiate new collaborations and multi-disciplinary projects.
Funding calls are organised on a yearly basis. Clinical and non-clinical academics with projects from all stages of translational research – from Proof of Concept through prototype production/ validation and onto early clinical implementation – are encouraged to apply.
See Governance for more information about funding calls and submission process.
