Introducing Ferring’s new Racial Equality Grants Programme
As a leader in reproductive medicine and maternal health, Ferring is committed to playing their part in reducing racial disparities in maternal mortality and improving in vitro fertilisation (IVF), pregnancy and postpartum outcomes for Black communities, Indigenous communities and all communities of colour.
As part of this commitment, they have launched the new Ferring Innovation Grants Programme for Racial Equality in Reproductive Medicine and Maternal Health (RMMH). This programme will provide research grants of up to EUR 20,000 to fund multidisciplinary research projects across four main areas: basic and translational; clinical; epidemiology and prevention; and social science research.

Applications for grants will be assessed against a standardised set of criteria by a diverse, multidisciplinary panel from Ferring’s Racial Equality in RMMH Taskforce.
