Strategic Research Funding Calls 2016/2017

Cross NIHR Infrastructure Funding Call

This pump priming initiative seeks to match fund research projects to create a strategic collaboration between HPRU EZI and one or more NIHR Infrastructure facility (HPRUs, BRCs or CLAHRCs for example) or other similar research organisations.

Research Areas of Interest
Applications will be accepted covering any emerging and zoonotic infection, but the HPRU EZI has identified the following of particular areas of interest:

  • Zika Virus
  • H7N9
  • Pandemic Flu
  • Yellow Fever
  • EV71
  • MERS-CoV
  • Antimicrobial Resistance

The HPRU EZI will provide up to £10,000 per project (Pay and Non-Pay costs) to successful applications on condition that the applicants identify equal amounts of matched funding. The final total of no less than £20,000 will thus provide the Pay and Non-Pay costs of a short research project.

Deadline
4.00pm, Friday 16th September 2016

How to Apply
Download the application form and submit to hpruezi@liverpool.ac.uk by the set deadline.

 

Research Impact Support (Open to HPRU EZI Researchers Only)

This initiative seeks to support the development of examples that highlight the impact of HPRU EZI research currently being undertaken.

The Funding
Total budget available is £10,000 for current HPRU EZI researchers to develop examples of research impact. Applicants should apply for awards between £1-£2,000.  

As a result of the funded activity the successful applicant will submit a summary of how their HPRU EZI research contributes to growth and the nature and extent of the impact (including any quantitative data that supports the case study, particularly any data around the economic impact).

Deadline
4.00pm, Friday 16th September 2016

How to Apply
Download the application form and submit to hpruezi@liverpool.ac.uk by the set deadline.
