- data from 2012-2017 gathered using the Wellcome Success Framework
- commentary on our choices of data, gaps we’ve identified and some initial analysis
Who this is for
- anyone interested evaluating research funding, health impact or charitable spending
- The Wellcome Success Framework is helping to clarify what Wellcome is aiming to achieve, and how.
- Between 2012 and 2017, a total of 2.2 million people participated in Wellcome-funded clinical trials or equivalent studies.
- Research publications funded solely by Wellcome (2012-17) performed twice as well as the global average, according to a proxy indicator of reach and use. Jointly funded publications performed even better.
- About 43% of Wellcome’s spend (2012-17) was used to fund research with translational potential. Of the relevant award holders, we estimate around 29% were actively exploring translational activities.
- Wellcome-funded projects to engage people with science and health research (2012-17) reported 22.5 million physical participations and 33.4 million online – but we had data from only half of these projects.
