Pump priming research grants
The BESS Research Committee has up to £15,000 available to award annually in pump priming grants, to set up and commence research projects. The purpose of these grants is to encourage clinical research into shoulder and elbow disorders. Proposals for projects that are intended to be on the NIHR portfolio would qualify, as this pump priming grant would then allow the grant holder to access research network support to supplement this funding for completion of their project.
You must be a current member of BESS to apply for these grants. This year the application form must be submitted online. You must be able to sign in as a member to do this.
The pump priming grant application system is now OPEN for 2019 submissions
The closing date for feedback prior to final submission is 28 February 2019
The final submission closing date is:
23:59, SATURDAY, 6 APRIL 2019
