Request for proposals

Vaccine Impact Modelling Consortium (VIMC)

The Vaccine Impact Modelling Consortium (VIMC) has opened a new Request for Proposals (RfP) for:

  • groups with disease-specific models of vaccine impact for malaria, COVID-19, meningitis A / multivalent meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MMCV), hepatitis B
  • other cross-cutting groups that will add value to the Consortium, e.g. focusing on operational aspects, health economics, impact of climate on disease dynamics and geospatial aspects

They have now held a webinar, and a recording and presentation slides are available on request. They have also put an FAQ document on their website.

Next steps for groups applying to the RfP are:

  1. Read the Guide for Applicants and FAQ to check your eligibility.
  2. Register your group’s interest (full instructions in the guide). Groups are encouraged to register as early as possible, as you may need access to Montagu (VIMC’s delivery platform).
  3. Submit all application documents by 31 January 2023.

For information in other languages, please see here: Français/Português/Español. Please note that VIMC’s working language is English, and application forms must be completed in English.

Successful models will be invited to join the Consortium as full members and will receive core-funding of up to USD $73,000 or GBP £60,000 per year.

Applicants must be based in a university or other academic/research institution. Prior modelling experience is essential, and models must already be developed and in use. For some categories, applications are restricted to LMIC-based groups, with priority given to specific countries/regions.

The Vaccine Impact Modelling Consortium (VIMC) was established in 2016, with a secretariat based at Imperial College London. They are now entering a new five-year phase, funded by the Gates Foundation, Gavi, and the Wellcome Trust. This phase will see a greater focus on modelling to address questions for vaccine policy and practice, working with a more diverse international community of modellers.

If you have any questions, please contactvimc@imperial.ac.uk.
