Marie Curie in partnership with Chief Scientist Office (CSO) and Motor Neurone Disease Association (MND Association) is seeking application forms through the Marie Curie Research Grants Scheme to fund high quality research that aims to improve the quality of life of people with terminal illnesses and their carers, families and friends.
The Marie Curie Research Grants Scheme is a joint call where funding will be available from three sources: Marie Curie, CSO with Marie Curie and MND Association with Marie Curie.
The scheme is spending up to £1.425 million for this year
- Outline applications are invited from lead applicants at recognised Universities, NHS hospitals, hospices or research institutes within the UK and the lead applicant must have a post which covers the entire duration of the proposed study.
- Collaborative applications are welcome and named acaemic/clinical collaborators are permitted – although, if successful, the contracted grant (and associated funding arrangements) will be with the lead applicant’s institution in the UK.
- Applicants are strongly advised to determine if their proposal is ‘research’ as defined by the National Research Ethics Service (NRES). Proposals focusing on pure service evaluation and audits will not be accepted. However, implementation studies will be considered.
How to Apply
Interested applicants may send their completed application forms at the mail address, given on the website.
