Catalyst funding is available to support training opportunities and exchanges, prioritising those involving LMIC members and academic/industrial partners, for the transfer of knowledge and skills in bacterial vaccinology
Up to £6,000 per award is available and each training visit is expected to be up to three months in duration.
The aim of this funding scheme will be to support members to train in vaccine research & development (R&D), targeting the main preclinical to clinical area of focus for BactiVac.
This scheme will be run up to August 2021. Successful applications could include ones that:
- Offer opportunities for both UK and LMIC members to undertake a bilateral exchange, to foster reciprocal relationships between BactiVac members
- Address key skills gaps within an LMIC, academic or industrial partners’ institution.
