The European and Developing Countries Clinical Trials Partnership (EDCTP) welcomes project proposals as a response to the following calls:

Senior Fellowships

Available funds: â 1,200,000
Number of projects to fund: 6 projects
Open to application: 22 February 2010
Deadline of application: 28 June 2010

Senior Fellowships linked to regional networks of excellence (NoEs)

Available funds: â 800,000
Number of projects to fund: 4 projects
Open to application: 22 February 2010
Deadline of application: 28 June 2010

Purpose of the grant

Through these calls, EDCTP intends to identify and support senior researchers capable of building and leading research groups at Sub-Saharan African institutions that will be internationally competitive and capable of winning grants from international funding bodies. This grant is both available for researchers already working in Africa as well as those looking to return to the continent (re-entry grant). For the Senior Fellowship NoE call, EDCTP specifically targets to contribute towards building of sustainable capacity through training and networking with linkage to the EDCTP supported regional networks of excellence in sub-Saharan Africa.

Establishment and Strengthening of African National Ethics Committees (NECs) or Institutional Review Boards (IRBs)

Available funds: â 750,000
Number of projects to fund: 15 projects
Open to application: 22 February 2010
Deadline of application: 28 June 2010

Purpose of the grant

EDCTP wishes to promote the establishment and strengthening of National Ethics Committees (NEC) and Institutional Review Boards (IRB) that are competent and independent. The NECs and the IRBs are encouraged to establish themselves administratively and financially so as to ensure sustained optimal function beyond the EDCTP funding. Strengthening of NEC or IRB aims at making them operational and gives support to their ongoing functions. Networking and training is encouraged and supported. Additional support in the form of online literature access, documentation, access to websites on ethics and GCP will be facilitated.
