Our funding guidelines

Our foundation aims at standardizing our funding activities for research into the hereditary spastic paraplegias (HSPs). Starting in 2018, two or three projects per year will be supported with a total of 25,000 to 35,000 € (not each!). The deadline for corresponding applications is December 1st. A decision by the foundations´s board will be based on reviews of anonymous experts from the field. Successful applicants will be notified by February 1st, and are expected to shortly present their projects at the annual HSP symposium in March.

For funded projects, we will additionally request a summary in layman´s terms to be published on the foundation´s webpage, and an annual progress report. we also expect that awardees will be available as reviewers in subsequent years.
