Funding for brain tumour research scientific conferences and workshops
Following on from the launch of our research strategy 'A Cure Can't Wait', we are setting up a scheme to support conferences and workshops.
This scheme is designed to fund scientific conferences and workshops that will inspire innovative research in these key areas and drive progress in the field, bringing us closer to understanding brain tumours and achieving our strategic goals.
We are now seeking applications for researcher-led scientific conferences and workshops that will facilitate:
Collaboration between members of the research community
Discussion between interdisciplinary researchers or healthcare workers
New partnerships between research and industry
The identification of key barriers which need to be overcome if we are to progress research in this field
A focus on improving quality of life
Funding of up to £5,000 per event is available. Applications for more than £5,000 can still be requested but will take longer to review. Funding will be allocated to cover direct costs, including venue hire, travel and accommodation.
Prior to the conference or workshop, 80% of the funding will be allocated, with the final 20% given on receipt of a scientific report following the event.
PLEASE NOTE: Applications are now only being accepted through proposalCENTRAL and not via paper/email submission
There is no deadline for this call and proposals will be accepted on a rolling basis.
Applications must be submitted online through our portal:
https://proposalcentral.altum.com. Please take the time to get familiar with the site and start filling in your profile.
Applications will be assessed on the following criteria:
Alignment with The Charity's goals as highlighted in our Defeating Brain Tumours strategy
The potential to bring together leading researchers across different disciplines to discuss new approaches to brain tumour research or the potential to bring together leading health care practitioners and improve service delivery or implement best practice in the UK
The potential to initiate and develop future work and collaborations
The feasibility of the event and its value for money
The call will be open for applications throughout the year and decisions will be made within eight weeks following the receipt of applications.
