UKCRN Portfolio Database The National Institute for Health Research Clinical Research Network Coordinating Centre (NIHR CRN CC) has developed the Central Portfolio Management System (CPMS) Portfolio Database. The aim is to build a complete picture of the clinical research taking place across the UK in order to manage the allocation of NHS infrastructure funding. The database holds records of all research ongoing in the UK that is eligible for the UKCRN Portfolio. In Scotland, studies funded by eligible funders are entered. NHS R&D offices and Scottish Clinical Research Networks are responsible for creating records on the system, however it is the responsibility of Chief Investigators to ensure that their study record is complete and accurate. Only those studies that are part of the portfolio will have access to infrastructure support. It is therefore, crucial that all eligible studies are included.
