1 SINGAPORE CHINA JOINT RESEARCH PROGRAMME 12 th SINGAPORE CHINA JRP CALL FOR PROPOSALS (For Singapore Applicants) Biomedical Research Council (BMRC) Agency for Science, Technology & Research (A*STAR) 20 Biopolis Way, #08 01 Centros Singapore

2 1 SUMMARY OF INITIATIVE 1.1 The A*STAR Biomedical Research Council (BMRC) and the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST), People s Republic of China, jointly announce the 12 th Joint Research Programme (JRP) call for proposals under the Singapore China Joint Research Programme implemented in August This international joint research programme aims to stimulate information exchange leading to cooperative research to advance science and technology in both countries. 1.3 For 2015, joint proposals in the area of Medical Technology are invited to be submitted. 1.4 Singapore applicants are required to submit their applications via to A star.edu.sg by Friday, 8 th January 2016, 5:00 p.m. (Singapore Standard Time). 1.5 All proposals will be reviewed by a scientific panel appointed by MOST. The panel consists of a group of scientific experts who will review and recommend complete proposals for award. 2 INITIATIVE DESCRIPTION 2.1 Under the Research, Innovation and Enterprise 2015 (RIE2015) initiative, A*STAR BMRC will fund projects that address critical technologies in the area of Medical Technology. Medical Technology encompasses technologies such as devices, equipment, as well as IT platforms that diagnose, treat and/or improve human healthcare. 2.2 This grant call is competitive and multi disciplinary in nature, and is aimed at encouraging engagements between the Singapore and China research community and research scientists/engineers to develop cost effective innovations through a needs driven approach that will improve patient care. It seeks to foster collaborations between the two countries to develop medical devices and solutions for clinical problems, and will support collaborative research projects with emphasis on devices, procedures, diagnosis, and clinical systems. 2.3 Please note that drug discovery research (small molecules and biologics) shall not be under the purview of this Grant Call and shall be rejected. 2.4 Projects will have to be driven by needs identified by Clinicians that are matched to a potential technological solution. The philosophy is to approach the needs, problems or gaps from a medical/healthcare point of view, and not from a technology push perspective, right from the start. 2

3 2.5 It is critical that technical researchers can understand and appreciate, even at a preliminary level, the motivation for the problem and the key features from a nontechnical perspective for a successful resolution. This includes understanding the existing (even if unsatisfactory) solution in the current situation, how the proposed solution will be tested and used in the clinical setting as well as the likely impact of a successful implementation on the end user/patient and/or healthcare organization. 2.6 Therefore, it is highly important that the clinical and technical research collaborators discuss and understand comprehensively both the clinical need and potential technical solution to ensure that there is value in such collaboration. 2.7 Up to five projects shall be jointly funded through the 12 th JRP. For each of the five projects, MOST shall grant a funding of up to RMB 1.5 million per project for Chinabased PIs, and A*STAR BMRC shall grant a funding of up to S$300,000 per project for Singapore based PIs for up to 3 years. 3 PROPOSAL PREPARATION AND SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS 3.1 The objective of this initiative is for projects to leverage strongly on partnerships and collaborations with scientists and research groups/institutions in China. 3.2 It is A*STAR BMRC s intent that the proposed project leverage as much as possible on existing infrastructure and programmes. No major investments in tools and equipment are envisaged. Allocation for manpower, service and share time charges for use of equipment should be factored in proposal submissions. 4 ELIGIBILITY 4.1 This Call for Proposals is open to Singapore public sector research organizations, hospitals, universities, polytechnics, and A*STAR research institutes. 4.2 For every proposal submitted, there should be TWO Co Principal Investigators (one Singapore based, and one China based). The China based PI must concurrently submit the joint proposal to China s MOST. 4.3 Applicants from the private sector are NOT eligible to receive funding from this grant, but may take part as a collaborator of projects, and co fund the project either in cash or in kind contribution. 4.4 The assignment of commercialisation rights and distribution of any intellectual property (IP) (made according to the contributions by the respective parties) shall be established in a Research Collaboration Agreement (RCA) between the Singapore and China research entities within one year of the issuance of a Letter of Award. 3

4 4.5 The research project will be funded approximately up to S$300,000 (for the Singapore component) for up to 3 years, and this figure includes funding for general overheads (indirect costs). For non A*STAR research institutes that are eligible for indirect cost funding, the maximum direct cost funding quantum is S$250, Under this programme, A*STAR BMRC of Singapore and their counterpart in China will fund the approved project undertaken by the respective sides through their respective budgets. That is, Singapore will fund the Singapore component of the project, while China will fund the Chinese component. 4.7 Projects should provide leverage in one or more of the following ways: (i) (ii) (iii) Provide access to unique/specialized characteristics of overseas partner country, e.g., specific scientific knowledge or technique, availability of key manpower, common interest in seeking a breakthrough in science, training in research manpower, research capability in a specific field, etc. Tap on specialized capabilities of overseas partner agencies, and through this, create strategic linkages to tap on specialized capabilities in the future. Provide opportunities to learn/share/benchmark research with your international collaborator. 5 PROPOSAL REQUIREMENTS 5.1 Proposals must attempt to fully disclose the research ideas and approaches. It is important that proposals are well crafted and provide substantive description of the research plan for a fair review of the scientific/technical plans and approaches. Proprietary or confidential information must be clearly indicated in the proposal. Proposals must not be duplicative or substantially similar to any previous project or proposal submission.
