Every year on 24 March, the world commemorates World TB Day. The European and Developing Countries Clinical Trials Partnership (EDCTP) wishes to make a contribution to mitigating the effect of this disease by announcing funding opportunities for TB researchers. A call for proposals in TB diagnostics is now open for applications.
CALL FOR PROPOSALS
Clinical trials, capacity building and networking in new and improved diagnostics for tuberculosis (TB)
Available funds: â 8,000,000*
Number of projects to fund: 2-4
Deadline of application: 24 July 2009
* We expect the EDCTP contribution of â 8,000,000 to be matched by at least an equivalent amount of cofunding from the European Member States and possibly further contributions from third parties.
Purpose of the call
The purpose of this call is to develop simpler, cheaper and more accurate TB diagnostic tool(s). The investigational product(s) should be manufactured under Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP). Priority will be given but not limited to products that can be deployed at the Point of Care (POC).
