The BOVA Network has funding available to help pump-prime collaborative research projects that genuinely bring together researchers in the built environment with those working on the control of vector-borne diseases.

We will finance 8-10 research grants valued at between £50,000 to £100,000, each of 12 months duration. There is a two stage application process. The first application is an expression of interest in funding which will be reviewed by the Network Management Board before selected applicants
are invited to submit a full proposal.

Projects should be focused on controlling malaria or Aedes-transmitted diseases in sub-Saharan Africa by modification of the built environment, although other vector-borne diseases e.g. leishmaniasis or
African trypanosomiasis may be considered. Show evidence of genuine collaboration between researchers from the built environment and those working on vector-borne diseases.
Show clear potential for further funding Applications are invited from all disciplines including epidemiology, development, social sciences, mathematical modelling, economics, supply chain
management, architecture, engineering and town planning.

The closing date for expressions of interest is 14th November at 17.00 BST - so don't delay in sending us your application!
