2011 Grant Program launched

We are very pleased to announce our 2011 Grant program and highly encourage researchers to participate. We will select three innovative research projects in the field of inflammatory bowel disease to be awarded a grant of 5000 euro each. These projects may concern basic science or clinical research.

Applications can be submitted until 15 September 2011 at the very latest and have to meet our terms of submission. These are available at the download area of our website.

The applications will be assessed first by our Scientific Review committee which consists of
top level experts in their area of expertise. Subsequently, our Patient Representatives Committee will assess the applications, which consist of representatives from both EFCCA and the IBD Research Foundation. Finally, the Patients representatives committee will choose which projects will be awarded a grant. For more information about these committees and about our procedures, please see our "Procedures for grant applications" document and our "Code of conduct/Conflict of interest" document. Both documents are available at the download area of our website.

Successful applicants will receive an agreement with the conditions related to the grant. A template of the agreement is available upon request via Normally Foundation grants are paid quarterly in arrears, although a different arrangement may be agreed.

Hopefully our Grant Program will lead to a better understanding of the cause of IBD and eventually contribute to better treatments which will significantly improve the quality of life of people with IBD.

Please address any questions related to our 2011 Grant program to our Secretary at
