Interdisciplinary research grant 2017
- Del al
- Up to £250,000
Lead applicants for Interdisciplinary Research Grants must be researchers from other fields who have not previously received funding for dementia research. However, one or more co-applicants must be researchers with a track record in the dementia field.
The Lead Applicant and point of contact must be based in a UK academic/research institution. However, the application can include researchers or institutions outside the UK.
The Lead Applicant is expected to have a contract (fixed term or tenure) which covers the proposed duration of the grant. If the Lead Applicant does not hold a tenure appointment, the application must include a co-applicant that does.
If the project requires ethical approval and/or Home Office licences, the award is dependent upon the requisite approvals being granted.
This scheme is not designed to cover:
- Clinical trials and opportunities to research 'add ons' to ongoing clinical trials
- Drug discovery or development
Clinical trials and add-ons should be applied for through the Global Clinical Trials Fund. Drug discovery and development work should be applied for through the Dementia Consortium or through ARUK's Drug Discovery Institutes.
