  providing the NHS with the support and facilities it needs for first class research
 
NIHR Office for Clinical Research Infrastructure

The NIHR Office for Clinical Research Infrastructure (NOCRI) has been set up to help public, charity and industry research funders work in partnership with NIHR infrastructure. Equally, it ensures that NIHR-supported Centres, Units, Facilities and Networks can work together to help drive the flow of innovative research for patient benefit.

NOCRI supports research partners by:

  • Research signposting - help with navigating the clinical research environment and finding expert researchers and world class facilities and technologies.
  • Research collaboration management - support for the development of collaborative research partnerships. 

model Agreements
A series of model Agreements have been drawn up by the UK Health Departments, the NIHR and relevant industry bodies to help speed up the contracting process for clinical trials and clinical investigations of medical devices carried out in the NHS, and support the contracting process for research partnerships involving the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, universities and NHS organisations. These include a model Industry Collaborative Research Agreement to streamline and support the contracting process for research partnerships involving the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, universities and NHS organisations.

Successful collaborative projects
Two booklets have been published to showcase examples of innovative Academic-NHS-Industry collaborations in Experimental Medicine and Medical device and diagnostics industry partnerships with NIHR Infrastructure
