UEFA Medical Research Grant Programme (UEFA MRGP)
The UEFA MRGP is a specific grant programme designed for academics working on medical and health related research that improves strategic decision-making in European football.
The UEFA MRGP encourages universities and scientists to develop their research into medical and health topics in European football. It is for anyone pursuing or already holding a doctorate who is analysing European football from a medical and health point of view. Once completed, the research is shared with the 55 UEFA member associations and is used for growth and development purposes.
In order to foster cooperation between its member associations and European universities, UEFA allows up to three researchers based in the territories of three different national associations to submit joint applications.
Each project selected by the jury is eligible for a grant of up to €30,000 for general health topics and up to €30,000 for health topics specific to female football players for a duration of one year. The jury decides case by case on the amount of the grant.
