International funding

Please note that studies funded by the US National Institutes of Health (NIH) or European Commission only have medium priority regarding acceptance onto the NIHR Clinical Research Network Portfolio. This means the studies will need formal consideration prior to acceptance, rather than being automatically eligible.

European funding

Horizon 2020 is the European Commission initiative aimed at supporting research and innovation in the European Research Area. The initiative has €80bn of funding available from 2014 to 2020 through the Participant Portal.
