Pilot Projects

The Pilot project scheme is meant for novel research ideas that if successful would lead to a Major project or programme application to Alzheimer’s Research UK or other funding body.

The lead applicant and point of contact must be based in a UK academic/research institution. However, the application can include researchers or institutions outside the UK.

The Lead Applicant is expected to have a contract (fixed term or tenure) which covers the proposed duration of the grant. If the Lead Applicant does not hold a tenure appointment, the application must include a co-applicant that does.

If the project requires ethical approval and/or Home Office licences, the award is dependent upon the requisite approvals being granted.

This scheme is not designed to cover:

  • Clinical trials and opportunities to research ‘add ons’ to ongoing clinical trials
  • Drug discovery or development

Budget: Up to £50,000. This can cover staff salaries, equipment, animals, running costs, or any combinations of these.

Duration: up to 2 years.

The call is now closed.
