Restricted Call: Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation: Sentinel Epidemiology and Etiology Data (SEED)

Restricted Call: Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation: Sentinel Epidemiology and Etiology Data (SEED)

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has issued a closed call in the form of a Concept Memo in the area of Sentinel Epidemiology and Etiology Data. The purpose of the Concept Memo is to articulate early thinking on the concept and anticipated outputs and outcomes for our potential grant. This call for concepts is the first phase of a multi-phase process to identify a long term implementing partner for their Sentinel Epidemiology and Etiology Data (SEED) initiative which is part of a foundation infectious diseases surveillance strategy.
 
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is in search of an implementing partner (either a public or private entity) who can, in this Concept Memo, describe the members of their consortium and how the complete organization will accomplish the goals. The list of institutions that can lead on these projects is limited – the University of Cambridge is one of them.
 
The information about this opportunity is not available on the Foundation web site. We have compiled all information received from the Foundation into a single document, which is attached to this email. The Project Scope and assessment criteria are included in the Concept Memo, also attached to this email.
 
Each institution is allowed to submit only one application and therefore this call will be coordinated according to the University’s Restricted Calls Procedure: http://www.admin.cam.ac.uk/offices/rso/restricted/procedure/ .
 
Internal Selection: Please fill in the attached Gates Foundation Concept Memo ( Pages 3-4 – Concept Details) and send to researchstrategy@admin.cam.ac.uk by 7th July 2014 17:00. You don’t need to fill in or edit Pages 1-2. Please include the PI name and department on the first page of the form.
 
Sponsor Deadline: 21st July 2014.
