Pump-Priming Grants

Pump-priming grants of up to £100,000 are available to allow IVVN members to accelerate their vaccine research, in order to improve vaccine development for livestock and zoonotic diseases in low-and-middle income countries (LMICs).

Pump-priming projects should aim to address a key bottleneck preventing the development of a vaccine, and will be awarded via competitive application to the IVVN Network Management Board.

Applicants must be members of the IVVN, and we particularly welcome applications from members who are Early Career Researchers and/or based in LMICs and/or female researchers. Please note all applications must contain a UK-based applicant.

The fourth round of pump-priming grants is now closed. To be kept informed of future IVVN funding opportunities, please sign up for free IVVN membership here.
