Impact of the HRB/MRCG Joint Funding Scheme

Impact and benefits of the scheme

The HRB has evaluated the outputs and outcomes of all HRB awards completed in 2014/15 and in 2016/17, including the Joint Funding Scheme. Compared to all other HRB funding schemes, Joint Funding Scheme projects completed in 2014/2015 were the most productive in terms of:

·    Oral and poster presentations

·    Prizes, awards, and recognition

·    Numbers of collaborations established

·    Policy and practice outputs

·    Healthcare innovations.

It is notable that Joint Funding Scheme projects completed in 2016/2017  were the most productive in terms of presentations at scientific meetings and that collaborations established in these projects led to publication citation scores twice the world average.

Further information can be found in the HRB publication: Outputs and outcomes of HRB awards completed in 2014 and 2015
