Since 2013 CCPN has been funded by the UK Medical Research Council, currently as part of a partnership grant for the period 2021-2026.
For the period 2000-2012 support for CCPN came from the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council.
CCPN is part of an array of collaborative computing projects (CCPs) and follows in a similar vein to the successful and well-established CCP4 project for X-ray crystallography. CCPN has also been supported by European Union grants, e.g. as part of the Extend-NMR project (linking together several software producing groups across Europe) and the We-NMR project (connecting NMR software via worldwide grid computing infrastructure).
