The purpose of this scheme is to provide funding support for large piece(s) of equipment which will support current and future research, particularly that of strategic importance. Potential applicants are encouraged to contact the charity prior to preparing an application to ensure that their application fits the remit of this funding scheme.
Our expectation is that requests will only be made for centralised, multi-user pieces of equipment which will enhance and advance more than one area of research and where a clear cost recovery and sustainability plan has been considered.
Funding can be requested for direct equipment cost (or contribution towards). A minimum request of £50,000 is expected as this scheme is not intended to support the purchase of small or research team specific items of equipment.
The dates below are the deadlines for receipt of completed applications by Moorfields Eye Charity. Applicants must ensure that they allow sufficient time for their research offices to consider and approve applications prior to these deadlines.
Please contact them directly to confirm any internal deadlines or processes which may apply.
