EFSD - Funding Diabetes Research

Information for potential grant applicants

Our main purpose is to encourage you to apply for funding and to help you put together the best possible application.

For this purpose we designed a publication which we hope you will find interesting and helpful, simply click on the document on the left to start reading and watching or download (22MB PDF file) here and save to your device to capture the embedded videos.

Our other goal is to continue to partner with as many companies and organisations as we can to ensure that we offer new funding streams that are as relevant to today’s research needs and that attract the very best grant applications as they were when we started our mission to fund the best research that we could.

The European Association for the Study of Diabetes e.V. (EASD) is a non-profit, medical scientific association and was founded in 1965. The aims of the Association are to encourage and support research in the field of diabetes, the rapid diffusion of acquired knowledge and to facilitate its application. more

Diabetologia is the Journal of the EASD and publishes original clinical, translational and experimental research within the field of diabetes. We are interested in papers that convey new information or insight into any aspect of the condition, ranging from basic science to clinical applications. more
