The Network Centre provides opportunities for pump-priming funds, equipment grants and travel awards.

Our Peer Review process

All applications for funds are reviewed by the Organising Committee, with conflicts of interest appropriately managed.

You can download pro-formas 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.

Exclusive grants

Network members are also eligible for exclusive Alzheimer’s Research UK grants.
