Innovation Grants

These are stand-alone research studies that will advance our knowledge of kidney disease particularly for new hypotheses where initial pilot/supporting data is required prior to a full research project.

  • Funding available: up to a maximum of £50,000
  • Funding period: up to two years
  • Application deadline: 5pm, 19 September 2019
  • Funding decision: February 2020
Closed for applications

Additional information

Proposals must be able to demonstrate impact in any one or more of the following areas of focus:

  • Translational research from laboratory to clinic
  • Research in clinical settings
  • Research into rare renal disease
  • Increasing kidney transplant outcomes

We particularly encourage applications that involve multi-disciplinary teams and are taking a holistic approach which is broader than renal, provides wider health impact and non-clinical involvement.

A total of £800k is available for this year’s call and we expect to make around 4 to 6 awards.

The grants are open to established researchers who are resident in the UK.

Both the project and their employment must be based at a UK center.

If you are applying to fund clinical research in England, using NHS resources, please be aware of requirements related to Excess Treatment Costs.

Successful applicants will be expected to provide regular reports and should be prepared to speak about their research on behalf of the charity.

Applications can be made online only through our grant management system.
