NBCF Grants Scheme

The Investigator Initiated Research Scheme represents an amalgamation and simplification of the numerous grant schemes offered in the past (i.e. pilot study, innovator, infrastructure, accelerator) and fellowships (career development etc).
The scope and extent of the research funded by NBCF will remain the same, and the focus on supporting outstanding researchers will also continue.
