GOSH Charity and Sparks Child Health National Funding Call 2019/2020

Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity and Sparks are inviting project grant applications for child health research from researchers across the UK. The emphasis of this call is on complex childhood illness, including rare diseases.

This is a national funding call and is open to researchers across the UK. For this funding call, you do not need to have a co-applicant or collaborator from Great Ormond Street Hospital or the UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health.

Applications will be considered from researchers across the UK. Early career researchers and those who are still consolidating their independent research careers are particularly encouraged to apply

Funding available:
Up to £2 million is available to spend. The charities would not expect applications to exceed £250,000. Funding will be provided for the direct costs of research (such as research staff and consumables) but will not cover consultant Programmed Activities, team-leader salary time or PhD studentships. Typically, projects will be up to 3 years duration.
