HFSP CALL FOR LETTERS OF INTENT FOR INNOVATIVE FRONTIER RESEARCH GRANTS: AWARD YEAR 2011
There are two types of Grant: Young Investigators Grants are for teams of scientists who are all within 5 years of establishing an independent laboratory and within 10 years of obtaining their PhDs. Program Grants are for independent scientists at all stages of their careers, although the participation of younger scientists is especially encouraged.
Grants provide 3 years support for 2-4 member teams, with not more than one member from any one country, unless critical for the innovative nature of the project, which is an important selection criterion. Applicants may establish a local or national interdisciplinary collaboration as a component of an international team but will be considered as 1.5 team members for budgetary purposes. Awards are dependent upon team size and successful teams will receive up to $450,000 per year. The principal applicant must be located in one of the member countries (Australia, Canada, the European Union, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Norway, the Republic of Korea, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States) but co-investigators may be located in any country.
Guidelines and further instructions are available on the HFSP web site (www.hfsp.org). International teams of scientists must first submit a letter of intent online via the web site. Specific enquiries: email@example.com
Deadlines : Compulsory pre-registration, via the web site: March 22nd 2010. Submission of Letters of Intent: March 31st 2010.
