Fourth round of IVVN pump-priming funding awarded
As part of our catalyst funding work, the IVVN awards pump-priming grants of up to £100,000. These grants are awarded to members for projects that aim to address a key bottleneck preventing the development of a vaccine. The fourth call for applications to the scheme was announced July 2019, and applications closed in October. Following review of the applications by our panels, we are delighted to announce the three projects that have been awarded this round of grants. The projects will involve 12 researchers working across five countries and will focus on vaccines for contagious bovine pleuropneumonia, bovine babesiosis and avian influenza.
