Getinge is committed to continue supporting the advancement of clinical study research that relate to disease states, conditions, and treatments relevant to the company’s mission. We recognize the important role that clinical study research plays in our mission, both in benefits to patient care and the advancement of medical technology, treatment, and knowledge.
We aim to provide responsible support. Due to finite resources and regulatory requirements, not every proposal will receive support.
Who is eligible to apply?
Clinical study research grants are awarded to the requestor’s institution that aims to conduct the approved clinical research. The research will be considered investigator-initiated.
Types of support and funding
Support may come as monetary support or the supply of equipment or material. Technical support may also be provided. If the research study grant is awarded, a contract will stipulate the terms and support granted.
What should I expect?
The application must be completed with all requested information in order to be considered.
An incomplete application will be delayed and may be denied if the relevant information is incomplete.
Decisions for funding are at the sole discretion of Getinge and decisions are final. Each application will be sent to the relevant business area for alignment with budget considerations before being forwarded to Getinge Clinical Research Committee for final review.
Applicants will be informed of the approval status once the decision has been made.
The representative contacting you may not be privy to the decision factors influencing the final budget decision. However, if support is denied for Compliance purposes, the applicant may be contacted to determine if the compliance issue can be resolved to align with Getinge’s criteria for support prior to the final decision being rendered.
If a clinical study research grant is awarded, the requesting institution will be required to enter into a written agreement provided by Getinge in order for funds to be released by an authorized signer of the applicant. The applicant should be willing to assume all Sponsor obligations as laid out in applicable clinical research regulations and standards.
What if I submitted a clinical study research request outside of this process?
Getinge will work through any applications submitted under the prior process and be in contact with you about the status of the study grant requested. If your request has not been submitted under the prior or this process, and you have not heard since your submission, please re-submit by completing the below form. As appropriate, the Clinical Research Committee may request additional information in order for the research grant to comply with our procedures.
