UK Prevention Research Partnership Scheme

The UK Prevention Research Partnership (UKPRP) will fund large interdisciplinary research collaborations and networks to support research on the primary prevention of non-communicable diseases in the UK. 

The UKPRP is a partnership of research councils, UK health departments and charities, including Wellcome. It is administered by the Medical Research Council (MRC).

We’re changing our funding schemes

The way we fund research is changing to support our new strategy. A simplified set of funding schemes will be open for applications in summer 2021.

Although our current schemes are closing in 2021, this partnership scheme will remain open.
