  Friday, 09 Jun 2023 | Funding Deadline

The RAD Accelerator Pool supports exceptional scientists in their dementia research. It takes inspiration from the fast-moving world of Formula 1, when if a problem arises the team work immediately to find a solution. Applications for up to £100k and are assessed by RAD’s expert scientific panel, which convenes at least twice a year. Funding can be used for equipment, headcount or research costs.

Applications are open to dementia researchers to explore side projects and ideas in parallel to their core research. The scheme is targeted at early and mid-career researchers, including current and past RAD Fellows and RAD Associates, however applications from more senior researchers will also be considered. The award provides flexible seed funding to a maximum of £100,000 per application.
