Dutch Kidney Foundation publishes calls for 2019

The Dutch Kidney Foundation (DKF) invites applications for four calls: for the Innovation Grant, the PhD Student Grant, the Collaboration Grant and for the Kolff programme. Deadline for submissions for the Innovation Grant is February 5, 2019, for the PhD Student Grant February 7, 2019, the Collaboration Grant closes April 11, 2019 for pre-proposals and the deadline for the Kolff programme is May 2, 2019.

The aim of the Innovation Grant is the stimulation of innovation in renal research, diagnosis, prevention, therapies and patient care through the support of innovative biomedical, behavioural and social research projects. The budget available for the 2019 call is € 700,000. Funding is up to € 100,000 for a period up to 2 years. Biomedical, behavioural and social researchers interested in advancing the renal field and working at a research institute in the Netherlands may apply.

 

Aim of the PhD Student Grant is to stimulation of renal research, diagnosis, prevention, therapies and patient care through the support of PhD Student Grants for biomedical, behavioural and social research projects. € 1,040,000 is available for the 2019 call. A PhD Student Grant awards up to € 260,000 for a research period of 3 up to 4 years. Pre-proposals can be submitted by biomedical, behavioural and social researchers interested in advancing the renal field and working at a research institute in the Netherlands.

 

With the Collaboration Grant call, the DKF wants to make the embedding of behavioural and social research in renal research stronger. The rationale is that different groups and/or disciplines can reach more together than alone. The aim of stimulating collaboration is to optimise the quality of life and quality of care of kidney patients and/or the prevention of (progression of) chronic kidney disease. Furthermore, collaboration will strengthen ties between renal research and patient care and/or prevention of kidney disease for more translational impact. The budget available is € 500,000 for one project. Applicants are Behavioural or Social Scientists with a strong track record working within an Organisation in the Netherlands.

 

The Kolff Program of the Dutch Kidney Foundation aims to support talented kidney researchers by means of personal grants. Kolff grant recipients are foreseen to make important contributions to the field of renal research and to stimulate the application of research results in practice. The total budget available is € 1,250,000. Talented biomedical researchers interested in renal research and advancing the renal field may apply. The applicant must be working at a research institute in the Netherlands.
