Strengthening research capacity

TDR Short-term grant for research capacity strengthening

15 March 2013
TDR have announced a new round of funding: Short-term grant for research capacity strengthening and knowledge management to help improve disease control

This is a new short-term grant scheme designed to bridge strategic gaps in research capacity and knowledge management to help researchers and health professionals increase their contribution in addressing issues related to disease control. Building on past investments in low- and middle-income countries (LMIC), the grant provides support to individuals or research teams to:

  • expand their scope of knowledge and/or skills, and contribute to long-term achievements and sustainability of research efforts leading to health improvement
  • address specific research capacity or knowledge management aspects that can advance the understanding, analysis and ways of finding solutions to public health problems

The grant is targeted to nationals from low- and middle-income countries, employed by a national governmental or non-governmental organization for at least 12 months. Each application must be endorsed by the head of the home institution. Only proposals with tangible results will be considered. Applications from previous TDR grantees and from women are encouraged.

Submission deadline 12 May 2013

Full details, including information on how to apply, can be found on the TDR website.
