When do I need to acknowledge NIHR Cambridge BRC?
Research outputs can include publications, press releases, newsletter articles, websites, presentations, posters and participant materials.
Acknowledgement of BRC funding is an important contractual requirement and a condition of your funding. We maintain regular reports on publication acknowledgements and this information may be used to guide future funding decisions.
Furthermore, acknowledgements are used as a metric by the Department of Health & Social Care to justify future budgets and therefore help ensure continued funding to support clinical research projects and infrastructure.
The NIHR Cambridge BRC not only directly funds projects and staff: we also support essential clinical research infrastructure at Cambridge University Hospitals, including technology platforms, key NHS support services, research nurses, administrators, clinical trials infrastructure and governance support.
Therefore, if your research is translational or clinical in any way, it is supported – either directly or indirectly – by the NIHR and you MUST acknowledge this is all your peer-reviewed publications, press releases and promotional materials.
