IDF launches new grant programme: BRIDGES Research Net

The International Diabetes Federation is pleased to announce the launch of BRIDGES Research Net, a grant programme that aims to reproduce and implement successful interventions developed by IDF BRIDGES-supported projects.

Since the launch of BRIDGES in 2007, 38 translational research projects in 34 countries have received our support in terms of the provision of both financing and mentoring.

BRIDGES Research Net

A-1: Aim of BRIDGES Research Net

Since its inception in 2008, BRIDGES has been financially supporting 38 projects in 34 countries (including 2 D-START projects). For more information, please visit www.idf.org/bridges

The aim of BRIDGES has always been to support projects which, if successful, can be easily replicated in other parts of the world. BRIDGES Research Net has been developed to facilitate this activity by selecting one successful intervention and sponsoring its dissemination.
