Lesley Jones Seed Fund Program Applications

LesleyJones-ehdn2018-vienna-066[3943] The seed fund program has been renamed to honor Prof. Lesley Jones. Lesley was deeply involved in the review of these applications, first as an SBAC member and Chair and later as an EC member.


Seed funds up to a limit of €50,000 are intended to fast-track pilot studies required to apply for larger grants from other organisations, or to estimate the statistical power needed for larger studies (e.g., in clinical trials). Studies funded through this scheme should result in conclusive answers to the hypotheses under test. Any European EHDN member can apply, however we especially encourage applications from working groups to stimulate discussion and collaboration within those groups while reducing any overlap between projects proposed by individual members. Seed funds are awarded twice a year. Click here for further information or contact Flaviano Giorgini or Kinga Kolodziej.

Calls for seed fund applications for 2024:

  • 1 March, at 11.59 PM CET (23.59 o’clock CET).
  • 1 November, at 11.59 PM CET (23.59 o’clock CET).

Ethical and legal considerations constitute an important part of any research project in particular if it involves human participants. Please find here collated links of relevance when designing your project.
