Wellcome Trust: Inviting applications for ‘Collaborative Awards in Science’ to promote the development of new ideas and speed the pace of discovery.

Funding brief: Collaborative Awards promote the development of new ideas and speed the pace of discovery. They fund teams of researchers, consisting of independent research groups, to work together on the most important scientific problems that can only be solved through collaborative efforts.

Your proposal should describe a significant piece of work that addresses the most important questions, in an area relevant to the mission of the Wellcome Trust.

You should be able to demonstrate why the scientific problem you are tackling can only be solved through an integrated, collaborative team effort.

They encourage interdisciplinary research collaborations, although they are not essential. They also encourage applications that propose interdisciplinary research across our Science, Humanities and Social Science and Innovations teams.

They will review:
The track records of all team members, relative to their career stage
The importance of your research question(s) to your field(s)
The feasibility of your proposal
The suitability of the environments in which you and your team members do the research
The time you and your team members will spend on the Collaborative Award, and how it fits in with other academic commitments.

Scientific review: One of the following expert review groups will review your application, depending on your area of research:
Cell and Developmental Biology
Cellular and Molecular Neuroscience
Cognitive Neuroscience and Mental Health
Genetics, Genomics and Population Research
Immune System in Health and Disease
Molecular Basis of Cell Function
Pathogen Biology and Disease Transmission
Physiology in Health and Disease
Population and Public Health
