This infographic highlights the positive difference medical research charities are making with healthcare technology.

Data sources:

  1. £380m, 78 charities: AMRC research portfolio database, active grants in 2015 and 2016 tagged with heathcare technology-relevant HRCS research activity codes.
  2. Map: apportioned value of awards from subset described above.
  3. Development of products & further funding: Data from 40 AMRC members using the Researchfish system to capture research outputs and outcomes to demonstrate the impact of charity funded research. Based on further funding which started in 2015. Other funders include universities, industry and other international funders. Please note: a previous version of this figure contained an error due to one incorrect further funding amount within the Researchfish dataset that AMRC received from participating charities (a £2m award was accidentally entered by a researcher as £200m). This error caused the percentage of further funding from European funders to be 42% when it should have been 16%.
