EuroSpine is providing funding for research that will advance knowledge about the spine (its characteristics, injuries, disorders, and diseases). Any clinical or non-clinical application for research will be considered if it is related to the spine, with the following caveats: In clinical studies, case series will not be accepted; and in non-clinical studies, product development will not be accepted.
There are three types of grants offered:
1. Development Grants
This grant aims to help taking a good idea to a feasible grant application. The funds are intended to help develop a pilot study. The application must link to the intended pilot study, indicate a timeline, and give a detailed budget.
Funding up to €10,000 (approx. AUD $15,200).
2. Pilot Study Grant
This grant is a formal pilot study prior to a full funding application. The study design may be longitudinal cohort, clinical trial or laboratory experiment. The pilot study should include a model for the research suggested, and demonstrate the importance of the topic.
Funding up to €30,000 for one year (approx. AUD $45,600).
3. Main Study Grant
This grant is for formal experimental or observational studies answering a specific clinical or a basic science question. The study design must be robust and appropriate for the question.
Funding up to €100,000 total over three years (approx. AUD $152,000).
The applicant or at least one member of the research team must be a member of EuroSpine.
Non-domestic (non-U.S.) Entities (Foreign Institutions) are eligible to apply.
