International Network of VENous Thromboembolism Clinical Research Networks

Kickstarter Awards

Kickstarter funding awards

The network and its partners have established the INVENT Kickstarter Awards to provide funding to support international study expansion of INVENT Endorsed Studies. These funds are intended to help Principal Investigators of academic studies endorsed by the network to initiate new international sites at INVENT-member countries. 

The goal is to support international collaboration by providing funding to enable start-up activities that are not covered by the primary funding for the study.

Amount: Up to $15,000 (CAD)

​Eligible expenses

  • Research Ethics / Institutional Review Board Fees
  • Study Insurance
  • Salary for personnel to prepare regulatory applications, introduce the study to local staff, liaise with local departments and prepare local study documents
  • Central meeting costs

Ineligible expenses

  • Salary support for investigators and travel-related costs.

Eligibility

Principal investigators of INVENT Endorsed Studies are eligible to apply. (Not Endorsed? Don't worry! See below). Both the principal investigator and a collaborating (lead) investigator at another INVENT-member country must be named on the application. During each award cycle, a principal investigator may only submit one application for a Kickstarter Award. Those who have submitted previous applications, both successful and unsuccessful, are eligible to apply to subsequent award calls.

Have a clinical VTE study not yet endorsed by INVENT? You are eligible to apply, though an application for Study Endorsement must be completed concurrently and sent along with the Kickstarter Award application. The Kickstarter Award application will only be considered if the study is approved for Study Endorsement. 

Relevant Dates

Applications are accepted and reviewed twice a year. This year's submission deadlines are March 8th, 2019 & September 6th, 2019.

Application and Award Selection Process

Please send a completed INVENT Kickstarter Award Application Form by email: info@invent-vte.com. Applications will be reviewed by the INVENT Awards Committee.

Award Administration

Kickstarter Awards will be sent directly to the collaborating (lead) investigator at the new participating site, to be applied towards their start-up costs.
