Closing date for Expression of interest: 23 July 2021, Close date for full proposal: 30 September 2021. This RFA is an open call targeted at Black African researchers engaged in health research from all recognised South African research institutions for the establishment of new SAMRC Extramural Research Units (EMUs).
The SAMRC and DSI have teamed up with the Innovation Bridge to develop and offer an on-line portal for registering all research and innovation projects on COVID-19 in South Africa. The aim is to provide an enabling platform to identify all COVID-19-related research and innovation being conducted or planned in the country, to encourage collaboration, avoid duplication and identify research and development funding needs and gaps.
The SAMRC, through its Grants, Innovation and Product Development division, is seeking proposals that address emerging and evolving questions on, and will contribute towards strengthening South Africa’s response to, the COVID-19 epidemic. The aim of this RFA is to support research on specific topics around COVID-19 vaccination, including vaccine safety and effectiveness and impact on the epidemic, genomics and immunology, and vaccine uptake and messaging, as well as topics on COVID-19 natural history and impact.
