BJA/RCoA International Collaborative Grant 2017

The British Journal of Anaesthesia is delighted to give advance notice of a new International Collaborative grant to be awarded in Spring 2017.

The grants are intended to support internationally collaborative research projects in Anaesthesia, Critical Care or Pain Management and may be for salaries or for the purchase of items of equipment. We will not consider specific PhD studentships in this grants category - please see here for information on our non-clinical PhD studentship currently available through NIAA Grants 2016 R2.

Applicants should be from outside of Great Britain & Ireland. The proposal must involve real, credible, collaboration with an individual / institution based in Great Britain & Ireland. Pilot / feasibility studies are welcome.

The Research Project
Preference will be given to projects that involve the application of basic science to Anaesthesia, Critical Care or Pain Management but clinical research projects will also be considered. The work may be done in a university science department or in an academic clinical department, but preference will be given to projects involving co-operative research between a basic-science department and a clinical department.

The Support
£100,000 per grant is available. This support is for salaries (including Superannuation and National Insurance (or equivalent) contributions; the BJA and RCoA decline to contribute to any other indirect costs), equipment (including VAT) and running costs. Applicants will need to provide full justification of all costs applied for. Applications requesting less than the stated amounts are welcome. The BJA/RCoA will wish to share any intellectual property rights and income arising from this work with the host institution. There will be funding available to make at least one award.

More information
Potential applicants are welcome to contact the BJA Grants Officer Dr Iain Moppett with any questions about the award. A draft version of the application form is available below for information.
