Pilot Project 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 Pilot project scheme provides up to £50,000 for novel research ideas that if successful would lead to a Major project or programme application to Alzheimer’s Research UK or other funding body.

  • The lead applicant and point of contact must be based in a UK academic/research institution. However, the application can include researchers or institutions outside the UK.
  • 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.
  • If the project requires ethical approval and/or Home Office licences, the award is dependent upon the requisite approvals being granted.
