We are very pleased to announce that in 2006 the UK National Co-ordinating Centre for Research and Methodology (NCCRM) awarded a five-year grant to the CONSORT Group for part of the intellectual support needed for CONSORT activities.
The grant provides funding for two part-time positions - a Coordinator in Ottawa, Canada, and a Researcher in Oxford, UK. These posts aim to provide the necessary support to the CONSORT executive, who until now have had no explicit research or administrative asistance.
The NCCRM grant has also helped to fund the redesign of the CONSORT website.
The meeting of the CONSORT Group in Canada in 2007 was also partly supported by this grant.
