UMD aims to improve diagnosis, prevention, treatment and care for patients and families with an inherited metabolic disease through UMD Catalyst Grants.
Collaborative projects that fit within the UMD objectives and within one (or more) of the UMD themes are eligible for funding. Researchers can submit an application for a project or for the start/part of a project with a maximum amount of € 15.000. More information and guidelines can be found here.
There will be four UMD Catalyst Grant rounds each year and thus there will be a quarterly deadline for submitting applications. The upcoming deadline for submitting an application is the 5th of February 2021 at 18.00h. Each proposal will be reviewed by 3 members of the UMD board and decisions will be made within six weeks after the submission deadline and sent to the applicants with feedback.
