PUMP PRIMING ROUND 7
We are delighted to announce that funds have been allocated for new HIC-Vac pump priming projects.
The closing date for applications is at midday on Friday 26th April 2024.
We invite proposals for initiatives that are ready to start and that align with the HIC-Vac Network’s objectives. Projects should lead to relevant and useful data for the human infection challenge field, ideally capitalising on existing data or samples that will support a larger grant application.
The application form and guidance are available to download using the links below. Please read the guidance carefully before completing the application.
Please take note of the following:
- All projects must be completed and fully spent by 30th Sept 2025.
- All UK-based costs will be covered at 80% FEC; overseas high-income country costs will be covered at 100%, excluding indirect costs; and LMIC-based costs will be covered at 100% FEC, including indirect costs.
- Grants are available for projects of £50,000 – £100,000 (at FEC), but applications for close to the maximum amount (£100,000) will require exceptional justification of costs requested.
