Open Grant Calls

Big Beat Challenge 

The British Heart Foundation (BHF) Big Beat Challenge is a global competition that will culminate in a single research award of up to £30 million to an international multi-disciplinary team, which has identified and proposed a transformational solution to a significant problem in heart and circulatory disease.

The award is not restricted to any one type of cardiovascular disease. Applicants can propose to tackle any aspect of the entire spectrum of heart or circulatory diseases. Applications can focus on enabling significant transformation for small subsets of people, or smaller but globally important changes for large numbers of people.
