Eligibility Criteria for IRP Research Grant
- Required Languages:
- It is necessary to have extremely high skills in the English language.
- While not necessary, knowing French and/or Italian would also be beneficial.
- All nations throughout the world are eligible.
- Uniqueness of the approach: All projects must clearly outline the approaches to be used (conservative approach or novel, creative concept) in order for their viability to be evaluated in order for them to be accepted. It is imperative for the researcher to confirm that their technique will yield answers to the given questions, in accordance with the established methodology.
- Global recognition: The quantity, caliber, and significance of a researcher’s scientific contributions—papers published in specialized journals, talks at scientific conferences—determine the worth and extent of their work
- Clinical interest: Real-world applications should not be divorced from fundamental research. The suggested initiatives should be pertinent to the clinical scenario resulting from brain or spinal cord injuries, and their results should undoubtedly further our knowledge of brain lesions and paraplegia.
- Overall evaluation: An appraisal of the project’s presentation, explanation, and motivation, including the rationale behind the planned experiments and their chance of yielding relevant data, a deeper comprehension of the mechanisms underlying brain and spinal cord lesions, and the potential to develop novel therapeutic approaches.
