Abstracts are not currently available in GtR for all funded research. This is normally because the abstract was not required at the time of proposal submission, but may be because it included sensitive information such as personal details.

Technical Summary

The Confidence in Concept (CIC) scheme is a key part of MRC’s translational research strategy and provides annual awards to institutions to flexibly support a portfolio of early stage translational research projects. CIC is designed to accelerate the transition from discovery research to viable translational projects by supporting preliminary studies to establish proof-of-concept so that the approach will then become competitive for more substantial translational funding

Description MRC Confidence in Concept Sheffield Consortium 
Organisation Sheffield Children's Hospital
Country United Kingdom 
Sector Hospitals 
PI Contribution Sheffield provides an excellent translational environment for healthcare research with close collaboration between scientists and clinicians at the University of Sheffield, Sheffield Hallam University, Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Sheffield Children's NHS Foundation Trust. The University of Sheffield leads the established Sheffield consortium application to the MRC Confidence in Confidence scheme. The receipt of MRC CiC monies in 2016-2018 has facilitated new collaborations in common areas of research including neuroscience, pain, infection control and medical technologies and all partners involved in projects contributed either financially or in-kind. There is continued strong demand across the partners for funds to accelerate the development of early stage healthcare projects. The Sheffield CiC consortium has established robust and successful processes using external industry experts to rapidly distribute funding and support translation of projects into impact.
Collaborator Contribution Institutional contributions to add value to the funding provided: Reflecting the importance of the MRC CiC scheme to Sheffield, financial contributions to a CiC award was made by TUOS (£80K) and SHU (£30K). Both NHS Foundation Trusts also contribute financially or in-kind up to 10% of the cost of their research activity to projects that they are involved in. TUOS maintains overall administrative responsibility for any potential award, utilises the good practice established in previous CiC rounds and provides significant operational support, overseeing CiC processes, IP arrangements, eligibility, partner contributions, reporting etc which are all captured by formal agreement. This CiC support is augmented by University of Sheffield Knowledge Exchange Commercialisation business managers, many of whom are funded by the Higher Education and Innovation Fund. Our partner institutions similarly support projects they lead on.
Impact All as the full ResearchFish return for this award.
