North Network Centre
The Network is designed to support dementia research through the funding of collaborative science and networking to share findings and resources.
The Network Centre provides opportunities for pump-priming funds, equipment grants and travel awards.
You can download pro-forma for pump-priming, equipment, networking and travel awards here and these can be submitted to the Network Coordinator or Administrator when applications open for the year. We’ll update this page with deadline dates once applications are open again for Network funding. These should be submitted to the Network Administrator.
Network members are also eligible for exclusive Alzheimer’s Research UK grants
Our peer review process
All applications for funds are reviewed by the Organising Committee, with conflicts of interest appropriately managed.
