Many charitable Trusts are keen to support medical research but may feel they lack the expertise necessary to assess applications for funding and to make sure that their funds are being used to best effect. Routing funding through Tenovus Scotland takes advantage of our rigorous peer-review process that assesses all projects and ensures that only the best are funded, so individual Trusts can know that their money is being well spent.
Trusts can give money for general use within the Tenovus Scotland programme, or, if preferred, can see details of projects that we intend to fund and pick one (or more) for targeted funding. There are opportunities to meet with the researchers of any targeted projects and the final report of any targeted project will also be shared with you.
I think it is highly insightful that Tenovus specifically supports fledgling clinical scientists to develop their ideas and generate the data required for future project grants, as it is particularly difficult to set up de novo research otherwise.
