Infrastructure Grants

We will consider applications of up to £1 million towards the cost of providing essential infrastructure to support cardiovascular science in any academic institution.


  • The BHF will be moving to a new research Grants Management System in January 2020.
  • We will no longer be accepting applications through the current GMS for Infrastructure Grants after the 4th of December 2019 until January 2020.

How to apply

These awards are accessible to all senior cardiovascular scientists.

In applying for an award applicants will have to demonstrate that a significant proportion (usually half) of the required funds is available locally.

The grant could be used to support building refurbishment or to buy major pieces of equipment to support the activities of several cardiovascular scientists that could not usually be requested on project or programme grants. The grant cannot be used for recurrent expenses such as salaries or consumables.

Please write to the Medical Director or Head of Research Funds with an outline proposal so that advice can be given on the timing and process for submitting a full application.
