Flexible funding needed?
This channel allows EB-ResNet and its potential grantholders to remain flexible and to respond in a timely manner to opportunities that arise, such as co-funding options, immediate need for funds, novel project ideas, or proof-of-concept projects.
Academic researchers, clinicians and also industry may approach EB-ResNet outside the scheduled research-proposal calls if there is an urgent need or a co-funding opportunity arises. For example, an international or national funding scheme, a company or another patient group may offer funding schemes that also invite co-funding. Proposals more appropriate to scheduled research grant calls or industry co-funding, will be redirected.

Note that the project leader must have a contract of employment with the lead host institution/organisation at least for the time of the project period. Project lead salary and overheads/admin costs are not eligible. All research projects submitted have to be hypothesis driven and meet at least one of the EB-ResNet's research priorities.
