New call for proposals: EDCTP Strategic Primer grants

This grant will provide funding for research groups in sub-Saharan Africa and Europe to conduct innovative, ambitious studies that will:

  • Generate results to inform future clinical trials
  • Sustain and strengthen the capacity built up under EDCTP I
  • Increase networking of African and European Member States' research programmes.
  • Funding is available to support clinical research studies of up to two years duration to address high priority research issues and barriers to progress. The purpose of the award is to provide pump-priming to allow researchers to explore novel and innovative lines of research that may lead to the development and testing of new or improved clinical interventions against HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis or malaria. Applications must involve researchers based at public institutions in two or more EDCTP-EEIG Member States and researchers at institutions in one or more sub-Saharan African countries.

Deadlines and applications

The deadline for preliminary applications is 14 February 2012.
