Step 1: Applicants should send an e-mail expressing their interest to GGI@emdserono.com. They will then receive a reply inviting them to complete a grant application form, including a brief description of their research project.
Step 2: Applicants should submit their completed grant application form and details of their project to GGI@emdserono.com. In response, they will receive an acknowledgement of their submission, which concludes the initial application process.
Please note: We would like to draw your attention to the stipulations listed in the program description and rules page. In particular, the research may only involve products from EMD Serono (the biopharma business of Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany) or competitors, if used on-label and if the aim(s) of the research is (are) not to evaluate or compare the efficacy and/or safety of the products.
If the applicant does not receive a request to complete the grant application form and/or the acknowledgement e-mail, they must assume that their application has not been received by the GGI secretariat. In this instance, the applicant should resubmit their initial enquiry to GGI@emdserono.com.
