Independent Grants for Learning & Change (IGLC) Track 2 - Call for Grant Applications (CGA): Enabling Patient Education in Relation to Oncology Biosimilars in Europe

Funding Agency:
Pfizer Inc.

The mission of Pfizer Independent Grants for Learning & Change (IGL&C) is to partner with the global healthcare community to improve patient outcomes in areas of mutual interest through support of measurable learning and change strategies. “Independent” means that the projects funded by Pfizer are the full responsibility of the recipient organization. Pfizer has no influence over any aspect of the projects and only asks for reports about the results and the impact of the projects in order to share them publicly. Through this CGA we encourage organizations to submit grant requests that, if funded, will support education in a specific disease state, therapeutic area, or broader area of educational need. Educational activities should not be focused on products specific to Pfizer.

Patient education leading to a clear understanding of oncology biosimilars. The intent of this CGA is to support educational programs that seek to improve patient knowledge and understanding related to oncology biosimilars in the European countries listed in the “Geographic Scope”section of this document.
