Call for research projects

The FFRMG helps fund biology research projects on myeloma and/or other gammopathies. It reserves the option to support bioclinical projects, and translational projects in particular. However, its objectives do not include support for purely clinical projects or protocols.

There are no restrictions in principle on the origin of the laboratories and groups concerned. The total sum allocated to a single project shall not exceed 100 000 €.

FFRMG grants can be:

    • Integrated within a large, structured research project at least partially funded by other sources (top priority).
    • Standalone grants to fund research projects that address a limited, well-defined issue.


Project selection

All applications for scholarships and research projects are submitted to at least two members of a committee of recognized French and foreign experts. They submit their opinion to the FFRMG board, which makes the final decision on whether or not to award the scholarship or fund the project.

The FFRMG issues two calls for applications each year, and applications are examined at two FFRMG board meetings held in June and November. The deadlines for applications are therefore around March and September.

Terms and conditions

Scholarships and funding attributed by the FFRMG are allocated and managed by the Fondation de France according to the latter’s current terms and conditions.

Within 3 months after the end of the funding period, a report must be sent to the FFRMG board, including any publications and communications resulting from the project. The admissibility of any subsequent applications will be determined by this report.

All publications and communications resulting from FFRMG funding must explicitly mention the FFRMG.
