Third round of IVVN pump-priming funding awarded

09 Oct 2019

As part of our catalyst funding work, the IVVN awards pump-priming grants of up to £100,000. These grants are awarded to members for projects that aim to address a key bottleneck preventing the development of a vaccine.

The third call for applications to the scheme was announced at our annual meeting in London in January 2019, and applications closed in April 2019.

Following review of the applications by our panels, we are delighted to announce the three projects that have been awarded this round of grants.

The projects will involve 20 researchers working across five countries and will focus on vaccines for foot-and-mouth disease, Nairobi sheep disease and tilapia lake virus.
