HSP Pakistan Centers of Excellence Call for Proposals

The Health Security Partners (HSP) mission is to advance health security through education, collaboration and stewardship. Through the Centers of Excellence (COE) program, HSP collaborates with leading educational and professional organizations worldwide to promote biosafety, biosecurity and biorisk management in the context of advancing high-quality diagnostics, life sciences research, and health education. COE-funded projects usually take the form of training events, assessments of capacity, policy and guideline development, and other activities that strengthen institutional capacity. The submission of this COE proposal, with the basic concept and preliminary budget, is the first step in the process. Applicants are encouraged to propose projects that will hold at least one event each three months, for a total of at least 4 biosecurity, biosafety, and biorisk management-related trainings or events implemented, and reach at least 25 life scientists at each event. If your proposal is of interest to HSP, we will work with you to shape it further and jointly develop a detailed budget. Approved proposals will be funded directly to the applicants and their institution and must be fully implemented no later than 30 November 2023.

Deadline for submission of proposals: 15 January 2023
