Wellcome Trust Preliminary Application deadlines

Leave a comment

Less than a month to apply for two of the Wellcome Trust’s Bio-medical Grants:

Multi-user equipment grants

Equipment grants are intended to provide support for multi-user items of equipment, including equipment required to create a central resource for a number of disparate scientific programmes.

Applicants should demonstrate how the requested equipment would enhance Trust-funded investments in strategic areas of interest and add value to Trust-funded research. Requests for equipment must be justified within the context of the research strategy of the institution. Applications must also take into account opportunities to access similar equipment locally or nationally.

Biomedical resource and technology development grants

Biomedical resource/technology development grants are intended to provide support for researchers wishing to establish a new resource/technology or to refine and maintain an existing resources/technology (including databases and collections) for the benefit of the wider scientific community.

For more information, please visit: http://bit.ly/1PzBbGp

The deadline for preliminary applications for both calls is Friday 20 November 2015 (5pm).

For advice on applying, please contact your relevant Research Development Manager.
