EDCTP Issues New Co-funding Call

http://l.caast-net-plus.org/98

The European and Developing Countries Clinical Trial Partnership (EDCTP) has issued a new funding call aimed at co-funding “strategically important, large-scale research projects”. The focus will be on funding clinical trials, clinical research and capacity building related to any poverty-related diseases in sub-Saharan Africa like tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS, malaria and neglected tropical diseases. EDCTP is looking to fund up to 50 per cent of projects up to a cap of €10 million and a minimum of €1.5 million for projects spanning three to five years. A minimum of three partners should form applying consortia, at least two of which are to be based in Europe and one in sub-Saharan Africa. The deadline for applications is 16 January.

EDCTP Head Appointed to Steer TDR’s Science Advisory Committee

http://l.caast-net-plus.org/8E

Charles Mgone, the executive director of the European and Developing Countries Clinical Trial Partnership, has been appointed as the chair of the Scientific and Technical Advisory Committee (STAC) of a World Health Organization subsidiary. Mgone served as a regular member of the WHO Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases (TDR) committee in its previous term and has been at the helm of EDCTP since 2007. He sees synergy between the appointment and his role at the EDCTP. “We are one of the few North-South programmes where there is a genuine and equal partnership in which partners from both Africa and Europe can claim co-ownership and leadership of the programme,” Mgone said in a statement. According to TDR, the STAC has three main functions: review current policies from a scientific and technical perspective, make recommendations and evaluate TDR’s scientific activities.
