EULAR Research Funding

Research Vouchers

The EULAR Research Centre offers several rapid funding opportunities (“vouchers”) to help investigators cover ad hoc expenses or services in support of their ongoing rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases (RMD) research projects.

 

1. Research Service Voucher

The Research Service Voucher provides rapid funding of up to EUR 5,000 in expenses for purchasing core services, technology/equipment, and core resources in support of RMD research projects. The goal is to give investigators with limited research funds the support they need to nurture a small idea with big potential.

 Researchers can either:

  • Add new data collection to an existing (“parent”) RMD project to develop new research that is distinct from the aims of the parent project.

  • Collect information de novo, outside the context of an existing project, to support the development of new RMD research.

Budget: EUR 5,000 per project
Deadline: Applications will be reviewed quarterly
Upcoming application due date: June 30, 2022

2. EU Grant Development Voucher

Budget: EUR 5,000 per project
Deadline: Applications will be reviewed as they are received
