2019 MRCG-HRB Joint Funding Scheme


The Medical Research Charities Group (MRCG) comprises over 30 charities. Some of these participate in the MRCG/HRB Joint Funding Scheme. The scheme funds internationally competitive and innovative research in areas of strategic relevance to particular MRCG-registered research charities.  

This innovative joint funding scheme allows members of the MRCG to support research of particular interest to specific patient populations, where they might otherwise not be in a position to finance the full cost of that research. Furthermore, while no differentiation is made between charities or disease areas, the scheme has been particularly beneficial for rare diseases where research being undertaken internationally may be limited and where charities wishing to contribute to the research agenda need to fund research projects led from outside Ireland.

The next call is anticipated in September 2019.
