Types of grant application for EUROSPINE Task Force Research (TFR)Given the current Covid-19 situation, EUROSPINE is not able to offer the usual types of grants.
The funding available in 2022 only covers Development Grants up to € 10,000
This grant aims to help taking a good idea to a feasible grant application. The funds are intended to help develop a pilot study.
Some examples are: methodological advice (epidemiologist, biostatistician), discussion with collaborators, formal literature review, translate outcome measures, test the feasibility of trial material. The application must link to the intended pilot study, indicate a timeline, and give a detailed budget.
In 2022, EUROSPINE will not be able to fund full Pilot Study and Main Study Grants. However, small Pilot Study and Main Study Grants are still eligible for funding, provided the protocol meets the funding criteria of a smaller project.
Any study with a budget over € 10,000 will not be considered.
The TFR Application Guidelines give helpful advice, but if you still have questions please send them by e-mail to: Rachid Salmi - (Chair, EUROSPINE TFR).
