The VALIDATE Network is funded by the MRC and BBSRC, as a Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) grant to the University of Oxford, and is a UK funded award that is part of the EDCTP2 programme supported by the European Union.


In 2021 VALIDATE received additional funding from the Wellcome Enriching Engagement scheme for our BCG100 Programme, celebrating the centenary of the first use of the BCG vaccine.


We aim to provide pump-priming and training grants to Network members, and to highlight relevant external funding opportunities that our members may find of interest. You can find out more about the funding available, our call deadlines, and how to apply for VALIDATE funding on these pages.
