Our VIAs are designed to bring funding from external agencies into the field of cystic fibrosis research. By the time we reach the end of our five-year research strategy, we want each pound we spend to secure an additional £2 in funding for projects that make a difference to people with cystic fibrosis. These grants allow us to respond quickly to new investment opportunities, and at least 50% will be awarded to projects in the field of transformational science, so we know that our funds will make a difference.
External agencies that may also fund projects we have awarded a VIA to include industry bodies, research councils, the National Institute for Health Research and biomedical research charities. To find out more about applying for this stream of funding, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
