The Proof of Concept Award will support highly promising feasibility studies to test novel and imaginative ideas with potential for significant clinical impact relating to the treatment of children’s brain tumours, providing the crucial early-stage funding which is often unavailable from external bodies.
A standard maximum of £60,000 is available for projects lasting up to 12 months. The Fund will also support projects of lower value. In exceptional cases (where a particularly strong case is made in the application) an award slightly exceeding £60,000 may be made.
Following feedback from previous years’s assessment panel, we would strongly recommend that applicants discuss their ideas with senior members of CBTRC staff before submitting an application. Please contact us to arrange a discussion.
