Collaboration Opportunity - European & Developing Countries Clinical Trials Partnership (EDCTP)

EDCTP Co-Investment Funding


The European and Developing Countries Clinical Trials Partnership (EDCTP) aims to accelerate the development of new or improved drugs, vaccines, microbicides and diagnostics against HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria, with focus on phase II and III clinical trials in sub-Saharan Africa.

Funding is available for those wishing to participate in the clinical trials partnership.

Kindly note, DSI will now need to enter into contracts with the applicant’s institution for all our funding instruments established to support SA’s participation in the European Union funded programmes. As a result, it may take up to a month to get a response and receive a contract from us. It is important for applicants to submit applications two months before the planned activity to have enough time to process and arrange payment.
