Seed funds up to a limit of €50,000 are intended to fast-track pilot studies required to apply for larger grants from other organisations, or to estimate the statistical power needed for larger studies (e.g., in clinical trials). Studies funded through this scheme should result in conclusive answers to the hypotheses under test. Any European EHDN member can apply, however we especially encourage applications from working groups to stimulate discussion and collaboration within those groups while reducing any overlap between projects proposed by individual members. Seed funds are awarded twice a year. Click here for further information or contact Christine Capper-Loup.
