Apply For Support


We would like to receive your enquiries for support.

What types of studies are supported?

All types of paediatric studies (drug, device, diagnostic, observational), all clinical trial phases, and both Investigator-led and Industry-Sponsored studies are eligible for support.

Is support available to studies without funding?

It is our aim to support high quality academic research studies as much as possible within our capacity. Where a proposed study does not have funding to cover the cost of CCRU support, the application will be referred to the CCRU Oversight Committee to carry out a full feasibility and internal review process. This is to ensure the optimal use of CCRU resources.

Can the CCRU provide support with grant applications?

If you are interested in applying for a grant award (with the NCRC or an external funding organisation) for a project which may require support from the CCRU, please contact us in advance for advice and input to your application.

To apply for support

All Investigators requesting support from the CCRU are required to complete an application for review by the CCRU Oversight Committee.

  • To request further information on the application process, please contact the Deputy CCRU Programme Manager, Deirdre Harrington at deirdre.harrington@ncrc.ie.
  • A member of the team will be in contact to follow up your application.
