EDCTP-TDR Clinical Research and Development Fellowships
The purpose of this Joint Call for Proposals is to provide funding to actions that aim to support researchers and key members of clinical trial research teams from low- and middle-income countries to acquire specific skills in clinical research and development through placements in pharmaceutical companies and PDPs.
The scheme targets junior to mid-career researchers or clinical staff (clinicians, pharmacists, medical statisticians, data managers, other health researchers) who are employed by a legal entity in LMICs where they are currently working on activities in the scope of the EDCTP2 programme and the WHO/TDR CDF programme. Placements are for a minimum period of 6 months up to a maximum period of 24 months, following which there will be a re-integration period of 6 months (subject to the approval of a final re-integration plan).
