Robotic-assisted surgery research pump-priming grant awards

RCSEng awards

The Royal College of Surgeons of England is offering a one-off programme of awards, funded by the Saven Research and Development Programme, to consultants (appointed since 2017), senior lecturers, SAS doctors and post-doctoral trainees in surgery who are working at hospitals and universities within the UK. The aim of the awards is to give assistance to such surgeons undertaking research into robotic-assisted surgery, usually in the early stages of their independent research careers.

Awards will be made competitively and may be used flexibly to support the award holder’s research programme.

The award is up to £30,000 over two years and must be used exclusively to support the award holder’s own research and may not be used for their own personal salaries. They may be used, among other things, for small items of equipment, consumables or technical assistance.

Please visit the RCSEng website for further details.

Deadline for applications: 15 December 2023
