BactiVac catalyst funding
Catalyst funding is available to support training opportunities and exchanges, prioritising those involving LMIC members and academic/industrial partners, for the transfer of knowledge and skills in bacterial vaccinology.
Up to £6,000 per award is available and each training visit is expected to be up to three months in duration.
The aim of this funding scheme will be to support members to train in vaccine research and development (R&D), targeting the main preclinical to clinical area of focus for BactiVac.
This scheme will be run up to August 2021. Successful applications could include ones that:
- Offer opportunities for both UK and LMIC members to undertake a bilateral exchange, to foster reciprocal relationships between BactiVac members.
- Address key skills gaps within an LMIC, academic or industrial partners’ institution.
How to apply
The call for applications is an open call, you can apply at any time. We will aim to have a decision back to you within three months of application being submitted. Please submit your application form and associated documents to the BactiVac Admin Team on firstname.lastname@example.org
Applicants will need to be members of the Network to be eligible to apply. The allocation of funding will be decided by the Network Operations Management Group (NOMG) and findings reported at the Annual Network Meetings.
