R&D Pilot Project Awards

From time to time, Instruct publishes calls for small scale pilot research projects in integrated structural biology. Resources are allocated to support a limited number of pilot studies proposed by researchers from Instruct member countries. Pilot projects may be funded up to a maximum of €15,000. The funds are expected to cover research expenses but not normally salaries. The intent of this support is to help researchers develop external funding for projects, i.e. the expectation is that a pilot study will lead to a grant submission to national or international funding bodies.
