Call for applications now open!

 

Team Science Grants

The Team Science Grants (TSG) 2019 call for application is now open until the 17th of June 2019 (2.00 pm, IST).

TSG will fund teams that bring together high-quality scientists from multiple institutions with complementary skills, knowledge, and resources to address an important health challenge for India. High-risk, high-reward proposals can also seek funding under this programme.

The projects funded under TSG should be multi-institutional with an inter-disciplinary approach and a suitable research management plan and structure. Though not mandatory, international collaborations are encouraged.

A grant of up to INR 10 crores will be awarded for a 5-year project.

Clinical/Public Health Research Centres

Call for applications for the Clinical/Public Health Research Centres (CRC) scheme of India Alliance is now open until the 17th of June 2019 (2.00 pm, IST).

CRCs are envisioned as ‘research-oriented centres’, which preferably involve multiple institutions that focus on important biomedical research problems and develop physician scientists. The CRCs would be virtual centres that could have either crosscutting or vertical research themes, with the training of early career physician researchers as an essential component. Beyond the funding period, the CRCs are expected to evolve as sustainable centres that strengthen India’s clinical and public health research ecosystem.

The CRCs can have an embedded Clinical Research Training Programme (CRTP)These will fund 3 to 4-year mentored research training fellowships for medical graduates (MBBS) and post-graduates (MD/MS).

Funds of up to INR 10 crores will be available for a 5-year project under this scheme.
