Application rounds are held for the research, translational and internships schemes and are announced several months ahead. Applications to the translational scheme may also be submitted at any time. There are no specific calls for applications to the conference-organising and outreach funds, these can be submitted at any time.
Please add the following acknowledgement to any published outputs: 'This work was part-funded by the Wellcome Trust [ref: 097829/Z/11/A ]'
Please note that it is a requirement of the Wellcome Trust that all peer-reviewed, original (primary) research publications that have been supported, in whole or in part, by the Wellcome Trust are made available via the PMC & UKPMC open-access depositories.
Where journals make a charge for open-access publishing, funding fromt the Trust is available centrally to reclaim this amount. Please contact Alyson Cowen in Research Grants and Contracts for further details. As of 1 April 2013 the Trust will require the use of the Creative Commons Attribution license (CC-BY) where Trust funds are used to pay an open access fee.

Our priority in C2D2 is to ensure that our world-leading established scientists, as well as early career colleagues, have the opportunity to pursue high-risk but innovative research. Our funding aims to encourage cross-cutting work between medicine, the sciences, the social sciences, and the arts and humanities.
Such research could include studies on the molecular or genetic basis of disease using novel approaches in synthetic chemistry or computer science, the testing of novel hypotheses relating to disease mechanisms using patient cohorts, the development of new approaches for analysing the economic impact of health, or projects in the arts and humanities which draw on scientific and medical expertise and/or help throw light on current health issues.
The C2D2 Research Fund will award funds on the basis of academic excellence, inter-disciplinarity, follow-on potential and innovativeness via a peer-reviewed process. Funding may support salaries, consumables, travel/subsistence costs and/or access charges to facilities.
If you have a proposal that is in the C2D2 area but is not inter-disciplinary and unlikely to become so in the future and that is to too large to be funded by your Department, then please get in touch with us to decide the best way forward.
The latest applications round has closed. The next round will be announced later in the New Year.
For studies where translational potential has already been reached, the C2D2 Translational Support Scheme will aim to accelerate clinical and commercial development and/or perform research that seeks to evaluate the potential for successful implementation of the research. We do not envisage funding clinical trials per se, but would seek to strengthen the supporting case for such funding. Support could also be provided to fund research on the marketability of the product/service, and on whether it would be regarded by health care systems as offering value. Likewise funding may be provided to more directly scope business opportunities and engage potential future commercial partners. Other possible valid uses of the fund include helping to develop and promote policy recommendations, to set up a commercial museum/gallery exhibition and to complete key research milestones. Funding is not available to cover the costs of statutory compliance and regulatory approval.
The C2D2 Translational Support Fund will award funds via a peer-reviewed process. The latest applications round has now closed and the next round will not be announced till later in the year. Applications however may also be made outside of the formal timescale. We do though request advanced notification of any such applications as they will still require peer-review.
One of C2D2's key aims is to effectively communicate the wide-ranging cross-disciplinary work on chronic diseases and disorders undertaken at the University to the widest possible audience. The Centre therefore welcomes applications for funding to support both outreach and the organisation of conferences and meetings. Funding is not available simply to attend/speak at a conference.
Chronic diseases and conditions impact on everyone in one way or another and we are keen to promote events and initiatives which will engage school children and the general public with the many different dimensions of the subject, from the scientific, to the historical, to the political. This might include public lectures, activities in schools, participation in public festivals, development of outreach materials/media etc.
Funding is available to help set up York-based conferences to support the promotion of new research findings nationally and internationally. We are equally keen to encourage the sharing of innovative and inter-disciplinary ideas amongst academics across departments and research centres at York by sponsoring 'sand-pit' seminars and meetings to which potential external collaborators may also be invited.
For funding of up to £3,000 please email your case for support in not more than 300 words to email@example.com
Please explain briefly how your proposal fits in with the strategic aims of a) C2D2 – particularly in terms of inter-disciplinarity b) of your Department and c) of the Wellcome Trust (see http://www.wellcome.ac.uk/About-us/Strategy/index.htm) and include what outcomes and benefits, both short and longer-term, you envisage for the project. Finally please include a brief outline of costs (not included in 300 word limit).
For conferences or events likely to cost above £3,000 please discuss your proposal with us directly, emailing firstname.lastname@example.org in the first instance.
Applications will be accepted at any time during the year.
