Up to €70.000


Through this grant programme, Pfizer intend to support research and clinical training fellowship programmes in regions where there are continued workforce challenges in relation to the management of IBD patients. The grant is not intended to support standard gastroenterology training periods but is intended to support supplementary IBD training for those who have already completed a formal training programme in gastroenterology. 


Grants of up to €70,000 per fellow are available

  • Grant funding is available to support one fellow for up to a year. The budget can include salary and support of the fellow's fringe benefits. Grant funds cannot be used for overhead or indirect costs.
  • Funding will be awarded to the institution, not an individual.
  • Fellow time spent in the clinical setting that is supported through grant funds must not be billed as patient care.
  • No aspect of the fellowship programme budget can reflect a benefit to Pfizer's business or a Pfizer asset.


Participating institutions are required accomplish the following criteria:  

  • Academic institutions that fall within the geographic scope of this RFP.
  • Institutions with fellowship programmes that include independent research and a strong mentoring programme. Clinical training may be included in the programme but is not required.
  • No aspect of the fellowship program can benefit Pfizer's business or a Pfizer asset.

Examples of independent research include: observational studies and outcomes research studies where the primary focus is the scientific understanding of disease; use of screening tools and their impact on improvement of patient health.

Examples of research that would not be eligible include research involving the study and/or evaluation of any pharmaceutical product and basic science and/or fundamental research (in animal model, in-vitro, etc.).

Examples of clinical training include: educational time with an interdisciplinary team in review of case examples and relevant didactic training as well as use of tools for improvement in patient health for specific therapeutic areas or conditions.
