SCI Research Collaboration Grants

As part of building international research collaboration, we offer annual SCI Research Collaboration Grants.

Applications are now closed for the 2021 SCI Research Collaboration Grants. 

The SCI Research Collaboration Grants support recipients to attend the International Spinal Cord Society (ISCoS) Annual Scientific Meeting and participate in workshops.

These grants are designed to facilitate the exchange of knowledge and to build relationships between individuals, institutions and countries involved in spinal cord research by funding attendance at the ISCoS Annual Scientific Meeting. They also provide an opportunity to connect with institutions and organisations that support the grant recipient’s area of research.

In 2021, the ISCoS Annual Scientific Meeting is being held as a virtual conference from 29 September – 2 October.

Group applications will be supported where it can be shown researchers are working to pool expertise and obtain cross-fertilisation of research ideas through collaboration. Total of five people per group.

If you are a researcher with lived experience of SCI then you are encouraged to apply.
