Ref.: (LML) Announcement LRI call for porposals
From: Nicole, Dinnissen, Amsterdam, the Netherlands
The Leprosy Research Initiative (LRI) is pleased to announce a call for proposals for funding commencing in 2019. LRI funds research with a focus on leprosy – including research applications combining leprosy with other neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) or other diseases that share cross-cutting issues with leprosy.
Proposals addressing any of the five LRI research priorities are eligible for funding in this call. There is no budget ceiling for the current call. By way of guidance: projects LRI has funded in the past years had an average annual budget of €30,000 (ranging from €10,000 to €75,000) – although in exceptional cases higher annual budgets have been accepted. The duration of proposals should not exceed four years.
Researchers interested to apply for funding by the LRI are invited to complete and submit a Letter of Intent (LoI), giving an outline of the intended research. The LoI should use the format provided on the LRI website (www.leprosyresearch.org). Applications that do not follow this format will not be considered.
A LoI may be submitted at any time during the year. However, to be considered for the budget round 2019, LoIs should be submitted by February 28th, 2018 at 24:00 (Amsterdam date and time) by email to the LRI Secretariat, c/o Ms. Nicole Dinnissen (firstname.lastname@example.org). This letter will be screened by the LRI Steering Committee (SC). If the feedback by the SC is positive, the applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal before the next deadline (June 1st, 2018).
With kind regards,
Leprosy Research Initiative (LRI)
