Department of Health and Social Care funded programmes













In addition to programmes funded through the NIHR - now including the Policy Research Programme (PRP) - CCF manages the Health Innovation Challenge Fund (HICF) - a joint funding scheme between the Department of Health and Social Care and the Wellcome Trust.

HICF-funded researchers are eligible to apply for Senior Investigator status.

CCF also manages recruitment to form a Technical Advisory Group for the Fleming Fund, a government initiative to improve laboratory capacity and diagnosis, as well as data and surveillance of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in low and middle income countries (LMICs).
