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 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 (registration is available here), 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.

Please read the IVVN Pump-Priming Grant Guidance Notes for further information and details of eligibility. Please complete the IVVN Pump-Priming Grant Application Form and send the completed application form and associated documents to IVVN Network Manager, Dr. Carly Hamilton, at by 9am on Monday 15th April 2019.
