The Seed Grant provides funding for pilot studies in arrhythmia research to gain preliminary results which can strengthen applications for CANet’s larger grants such as the Strategic Research Grant (SRG)..
SEED Grants must be focused on research that has potential to grow into larger CANet Programs. Up to $25,000 is available (Max. 1 year duration) for Projects in areas aligned with CANet’s strategic priorities. Matching funds are not required but recommended. A maximum of one SEED grants can be held at any one time by a Network Investigator. Senior Investigators (>10 years) are strongly encouraged to include and mentor a junior co-PI on the Project. Network Investigators will be encouraged to apply for a CANet Strategic Research Grant (SRG) after the completion of the SEED grant, if applicable.
Every CANet-funded project includes a patient partner. Patients are represented on every CANet committee. From governance to research to disease management, patients are co-leaders in CANet.
