Clinical Studies Fund 

Established Investigator Awards

In keeping with the goals of the ECVIM-CA and the generosity of our sponsors, we have created a Clinical Studies Fund, whose aim is to encourage research and other contributions to knowledge relating to the pathogenesis, diagnosis, therapy, prevention, and control of diseases directly or indirectly affecting the internal organs of companion animals in Europe.

The Principal Investigator or Co-Principal Investigator for the Established Investigator Program needs to be a Diplomate of the ECVIM or ACVIM. If the latter, at least one member of the project team needs to be a Diplomate of the ECVIM and based in Europe (including the U.K.).

Only clinical projects that do not involve invasive or harmful procedures will be considered. An expert panel will review all proposals according to a common list of objective criteria and funding will be granted solely on scientific merit and availability of funding, after ranking the proposals accordingly. 

Deadline for applications: 17:00 GMT on 8th June 2020. 

Funding decision: Applicants will be informed of the reviewers’ decision by: 3rd August 2020. 

Applications should be submitted by email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and will then be forwarded to members of the Clinical Studies Fund Committee for evaluation.
