CID and University Funding Coordination

Supporting Cambridge Academics

Cambridge Infectious Diseases offers a knowledge exchange platform for you to connect with network members thru different types of collaborative joint ventures, most commonly:

Consultation - we can provide as-needed interaction/administrative support on a specific grant document, process or activity to get input/support, feedback or advice. In particular the coordinator can help identify potential collaborators from other disciplines, and provide support on developing impact activities/statements.

Convening - we can create opportunities for and facilitate connections among network members to enable their further engagement, from small focus group meetings to larger scale conferences

Cross-Cambridge Funding Bids - We lead and support major interdisciplinary research funding proposals. By identifying and discussing emerging infectious diseases challenges through our workshops and Infectious Diseases NeXt series/ seminars, we help lay the groundwork for quick responses to funding calls. In particular we can assist with developing Impact summaries and Pathways to Impact, JES submissions X5.

CID places major relevant funding body calls on our Current Open Calls page. This list is regularly updated but is selected key opportunities. In addition, we have set up a link for you to browse a live view of  all funding opportunities linked to infectious diseases research here Research Professional Feed page. we will periodically email you full call details, and also place them in monthly bulletins.

If you would like  us to assist with a convening meeting to discuss a bid, please contact the Coordinator directly.
