UKCRC Health Research Classification System


While much of the HRCS documentation focuses on coding, one of the main uses of the HRCS in the UK is to regularly provide a snapshot of nationwide funding of biomedical research. The UK Health Research Analysis report series was begun in 2004 and has provided an invaluable and increasingly comprehensive source of information for strategic decision making.
