What is the GGI?

The GGI is an initiative funded by EMD Serono, the biopharma business of Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany.

Researchers with proposals for projects that have the potential to advance understanding in the field of growth are invited to apply for the GGI award.

EMD Serono is investing a total of 400,000 euros per year in this programme. This total amount will be divided among up to 3 research proposals. The duration of each project should not exceed 3 years. Projects with indirect costs exceeding 25% of project value will not be accepted.

Applications are evaluated by an independent Scientific Steering Committee composed of internationally renowned researchers and endocrinologists, according to 5 criteria:

  • Innovation
  • Scientific rationale
  • Clarity
  • Feasibility
  • Impact of research
Applications for the 2019 grant are now closed. Should you wish to apply for the 2020 grant, please check back here for further updates when the grant reopens in September 2019.
