Ambit of the grant and focus areas:

  • Applications for a three-year grant are invited from interested individuals and teams from not-for-profit research organisations.
  • The call is for one grant in any branch of science and technology for cutting-edge “Bench to Bedside” translational projects leading to interventions that improve the health of individuals and the public. Any project designed to address a focused disease related topic with cutting-edge techniques and analysis resulting in translational solutions to illness or clinical problems will be eligible to apply.
  • However, climate change, agricultural sciences and ecological sciences are excluded from the ambit of this call.
  • Sree PVF expects that proposals submitted under this funding initiative describe ambitious projects that lead to substantial benefit to human health with measurable impact. The grant is envisaged as an enabler to deliver ready to deploy solutions which can lead to successful bench-side applications. A key requirement of the grant is that the proposed research should, by the end of the 3-year grant period, lead to tangible outcomes, that can immediately be translated into innovative tools/products/treatments/interventions that are easily accessible and cost-effective, thus benefitting large sections of the population.
  • Proposals for less than three years will not be considered.

 

Eligibility:

  • Interested individuals and teams from universities, R&D institutions, medical centers and recognized non-profit research organizations in India are eligible to apply.
  • The proposals can be from single institution or multi-institutional. International collaborations are also eligible, however the lead organization must be based in India. In case of international collaborations, a strong justification must be provided as to why this collaboration is essential for the execution of the project, what value the collaboration will add to the proposal and why this work cannot be carried out in India. Any regulatory approvals needed from the Indian Government for the collaboration as well as material transfer etc., need to be highlighted.
  • The minimum eligibility criteria for applicants is PhD/MD/MS or equivalent.
  • Since there is no salary on offer, the applicants should already have secured salary and space from the Host Institution before applying.
  • The Principal Investigator should be below 50 years of age (5year age exception is given for women applicants).
  • Sree PVF grants are not intended to duplicate support available from other Indian Government/other sources. Where applicants already received substantial funding for their core activities/similar work, they will only be eligible if they can demonstrate that the activity for which funding is sought is additional to the work for which they had already received funding from other sources.

 

Budget:

  • The maximum budget is Rs 3 Crores for one grant.
    Grant will be disbursed in three tranches with each tranche no more than Rs. 1.0 crore per year over three years.
  • Eligible costs for funding are Capital expenditure (equipment); Manpower; Consumables; Travel (local & international travel, and local hospitality); Contingency; Overheads; Outsourcing; others, such as training & awareness; workshops; publications; review meetings, etc. based on the requirement of the project. The minimum eligibility criteria for applicants is PhD/MD/MS or equivalent.
  • SreePVF offers flexibility to the applicant in how they wish to utilize the budget as long as the requested costs commensurate with the proposed research and are strongly justified.
  • However, salary for Principal Investigator is not included in the grant. The Host Institution is expected to provide salary and space for the duration of the grant period.
  • The Grant will only be given to the primary Host Institution in India. Money disbursement in case of multi-institutional grants is the responsibility of the primary lead institution, which must put in place a suitable mechanism.
