Scientific Conference Grants

Alzheimer’s Research UK is Europe’s largest charity funder of dementia research, funding the best biomedical research, from basic to clinical, that improves our understanding of all the causes of different dementias or improves diagnosis, prevention and treatment.

The Scientific Conference Grant scheme is to promote networking, collaborations, communication and dissemination of research results through scientific conferences. If you are organising a conference and would like financial support from Alzheimer’s Research UK, we are able to support you through sponsorship. We are keen to support relevant conferences by providing funding of up to £2,000.

Applicants must be organising or hosting the conference.

The lead applicant and point of contact must be based in a UK academic/research institution. However, the conference co-applicants and venue may be international.

The Lead Applicant is expected to have a contract (fixed term or tenure) which covers the proposed duration of the grant. If the Lead Applicant does not hold a tenure appointment, the application must include a co-applicant that does.

Applications can be submitted at any time and a decision will usually be given within eight weeks.
