About the MRCG/HRB Joint Funding Scheme

Since 2006, the Medical Research Charities Group (MRCG) and the HRB have operated an innovative joint funding scheme that allows members of the MRCG to support research of particular interest to specific patient populations. This scheme provides funding for clearly defined research projects in disease areas of strategic relevance to each individual charity. MRCG/HRB awards will be up to a maximum total award value of 300,000 for projects from 12 up to 36 months.

As calls are announced, applicants should contact the designated contact point at the respective charity.
