Programme grant - MRC

Contents

Introduction

We define a programme as a coordinated and coherent group of related projects. You may develop these projects to address an interrelated set of questions across a broad scientific area.

We do not expect you to find answers to all questions within the duration of the grant. Parts of the programme may be a continuation of current activity, but we expect other elements to be innovative and ambitious.

Programmes are a large investment for MRC, so we expect you to show how your application fits within the MRC strategy.

Please see the ‘Who can apply’ section for details of our current researcher-led programme grant opportunities.
