Scholarship Description: The Innovation in Oral Care Awards (“Award(s)”) are jointly sponsored by IADR and GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), with funding provided exclusively by GSK. The IADR mission is to advance research and increase knowledge for the improvement of oral health worldwide. It does so through its Divisions and Sections as well as in partnership with international dental associations, industry, health agencies, and scientific and educational professional organizations. These innovation awards offer opportunities for investigators to conduct dental research that will have a direct impact on the oral health of the public.
What does it cover? Competitive Award(s), of up to $75,000 each
Selection Criteria: Any proposed innovation or new technology should provide significant benefits to the consumer, such as improved oral health and/or quality of life.
– Ultimately the proposed innovations or technologies should be available to large numbers of people through retail channels such as ‘over-the-counter’ (OTC) or general sale. Initially, however, it may be appropriate for availability to be on a prescription basis for a limited period before transitioning to OTC.
– Restorative materials, dental instruments and equipment, and diagnostics for non-oral conditions should not receive much consideration unless the technological advance provides significant benefit to the oral health and quality of life status of the public.
