EDCTP-TDR Research Grants on Infectious Diseases

Scholarship / Financial aid: fellowships available

Date: 6-24 months

Deadline: 30 January 2015, 17:00

Open to: junior to mid-career researchers or clinical staff

Announcement follows

Researchers from low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) who are involved in clinical research projects have limited opportunities to acquire experience and develop skills for conducting clinical trials outside of an academic or public sector setting. EDCTP and TDR have decided to jointly implement a fellowship scheme that will support researchers to obtain these skills, while ensuring synergies between researchers and clinical staff, pharmaceutical companies, product development partnerships (PDPs) and research institutions. This partnership will have a leverage effect on the number of individuals trained, resulting in an increased impact on research and development capacity in LMICs.


The purpose of this Joint Call for Proposals is to support researchers and key members of clinical trial research teams from LMICs to acquire specialist skills in clinical research and development through placements in pharmaceutical companies and PDPs. The scheme targets junior to mid-career researchers or clinical staff (clinicians, pharmacists, medical statisticians, data managers, other health researchers) who are employed by a legal entity in LMICs where they are currently working on activities in the scope of EDCTP or TDR.

The EDCTP-TDR partnership includes a joint evaluation and selection process of applications submitted to this Call. However, grant awarding and budget management are managed separately by each organisation(1). TDR will fund fellows employed by a research institution in any LMIC to be placed in pharmaceutical companies and PDPs either in or outside Europe to train and develop new research skills on infectious diseases including HIV/AIDS, TB, malaria, Ebola and NIDs(2). EDCTP will fund fellows employed by a sub-Saharan African legal entity to be placed in European-based pharmaceutical companies to train and develop new research skills of relevance to PRDs(3).

Fellows can only be funded once under this grant scheme. Grants awarded are not transferrable from one individual to another. Placements are for a minimum period of 6 months up to a maximum period of 24 months. Fellows must be committed to return to their home organisation for a minimum of two years after completion of the fellowship. Fellows should be able to demonstrate how the experience gained during the training programme will be applied upon return to their home organisation.

Expected impact

This Joint Call for Proposals will develop human resources to promote high quality research and development in LMICs. Fellowships are expected to add significantly to the development of the best and most promising researchers from LMICs, in order to enhance and maximise their contribution to research institutions in LMICs, including training of peers. The scheme will strengthen collaboration between institutions, researchers and clinical staff in LMICs, pharmaceutical companies and PDPs.


Please access the list of host organisations that have agreed to participate in this scheme.


For EDCTP and TDR:
At the deadline for the submission of proposals, the fellow should 1) hold a post-graduate degree 2) have clinical and/or research experience in infectious diseases and 3) be working for the last 12 months in a legal entity registered in a LMIC
The fellow must have graduated up to 15 years prior to the submission of the application.

The applicant must be the legal entity registered in a sub-Saharan African country employing the fellow.

For TDR:
The fellow must be a national or citizen, and resident in a LMIC.
