Request for Proposals: A Systems Biology Approach to Pregnancy and Prematurity

 GAAAPS

The Global Alliance to Prevent Prematurity and Stillbirth (GAPPS) is now accepting letters of inquiry for a new round of grants as part of its Preventing Preterm Birth initiative (PPB).

GAPPS seeks projects that discover and characterize longitudinal changes associated with normal and abnormal pregnancy and develop biomarkers to identify at-risk pregnancies through rigorous analysis of underlying biological mechanisms that lead to preterm birth, focusing on the role of high dimensional systems biology and its applications in pregnancy.

The goal of this RFP is to solicit applications utilizing one or more high-throughput systems biology approaches in a pilot study using data and biologic samples collected prospectively throughout the course of gestation for 50 women with spontaneous term delivery and 25 women with early spontaneous preterm birth (less than or equal to 34 weeks gestation).

GAPPS is expecting to fund several projects for up to $500,000 US dollars each. The Preventing Preterm Birth initiative is funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation as part of the Grand Challenges in Global Health.

Details and application instructions are available at http://www.gapps.org/healthybirth. Letters of inquiry are being accepted online until 1 December, 2014.

The PPB review committee will review all letters of inquiry submitted, and selected applicants will be invited to submit a full grant proposal.

We look forward to receiving innovative ideas from scientists around the world. If you don’t submit a letter of inquiry yourself, we hope you will forward this message to someone else who might be interested.

Hivos Grants for Innovative Ideas and Best Practices for more open, democratic & greener societies

Hivos is accepting submissions for its first round of Social Innovation Awards that provide grants to individuals, organizations and companies from Asia, Africa and Latin America to share their most innovative ideas and best practices that contribute to more open, democratic and green societies.

Addressing the major challenges to the future of people and the planet requires new ideas. In the face of persistent inequality, an unsustainable economic system and threats to freedom and dignity, Hivos is continuously looking for new ways, new practices and new alliances that will contribute to systemic change.

This year, Hivos is launching its first Social Innovation Award. The award is meant to encourage new solutions for social change by supporting innovative ideas and practices which expand and defend freedom or create productive ecosystems that sustain human progress.

The Hivos Social Innovation Award has two categories:

  • A prize for a promising innovative idea that needs support to develop into a prototype.
  • A prize for a proven innovative approach that needs support to scale up and increase impact.

Both awards entail a €15,000 prize which must be invested in further developing the concept. The first category award consists of a € 5,000 prize and a coaching trajectory worth € 10,000 to develop the idea into a prototype. The second category prize is intended as an investment in scaling proven approaches within the next two years.

The semi-finalists are selected online by the public together with Hivos. They are then offered an interactive learning trajectory that will enable them to elaborate their proposal. After a jury determines who the top 3 finalists per category are, they will get the opportunity to pitch their proposals in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The deadline for the first round of submissions is 9 November 2014. The Award Ceremony will be on 5 February 2015.
