Grant funding for scientists

Grant-funding for scientists

Borne is committed to funding the best scientific ideas and support new projects to improve the health of mothers and prevent babies from being born too soon. 

Action Medical Research

Borne has established a grant scheme with Action Medical Research since 2016. Every research proposal is rigorously peer-reviewed by Action’s Scientific Advisory Panel to ensure we fund the very best science and grants are awarded in open competition each year.

2020 call for projects

In 2020, Borne and Action Medical Research are teaming up to fund projects from across the UK, with up to £500,000 for translational research into the causes of preterm birth. These projects will help to develop diagnostic, treatment and prevention strategies to reduce the rates of prematurity.

Applications will be considered through the Action Medical Research peer review system. The closing date for outline applications will be the 20 November 2019.

To apply for co-funded projects, please review the Borne-Action remit and the guidelines on Action Medical Research’s website.
