Funding excellent research

Aiming for a life without EB

EB Resnet supports and coordinates research funding on behalf of its member patient organisations and partners. We currently offer three funding schemes: Research grants through scheduled Calls for proposals, Ad-hoc grants our flexible funding scheme, and Co-funding for industry-partnering projects.

EB Resnet welcomes proposals for innovative research and clinical development of treatments or diagnostics. All proposals are evaluated for scientific excellence, feasibility and value for money, and whether they address the priority needs of people with EB. We undertake peer review to ensure that only the best research is funded
