SBRI funding competition - vaccines for global epidemics (clinical)
This is a Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI) competition run in partnership with the United Kingdom Department of Health and the Medical Research Council. It aims to support the clinical development of candidate vaccines against 12 diseases. The UK Vaccine Network has identified these diseases as a priority because they have the potential to cause epidemics in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs).

£35,000,000 (thirty five million pounds) have been allocated for the clinical development of vaccines up to and including phase IIb trials.
While it is expected that individual contracts will be worth up to £3,000,000 (three million pounds), they will consider making larger awards on a case-by-case basis.
If the Department of Health does not distribute the entire £35,000,000 available, the competition will reopen in 2018.
