Reviewing your application


We will always contact you to inform you as to whether we are able to support your application or not. If your application complies with our requirements and we are able to support your application, we will inform you what needs to take place in order to proceed further. 

Applicants are informed that:

  • Each application request will be assessed on its merits and we will prioritise those requests which are aligned to our therapeutic areas of interest with a focus on supporting medical advancement in improving the lives of patients and ongoing medical and scientific research and education. 
  • We can unfortunately not support all application requests, as we may already be committed to supporting other meetings and activities with educational, scientific, or clinical benefit related to improving care for people with iron deficiency. We therefore reserve the right to decline any request for sponsorship at any time.

Whenever we support applicants with sponsorship funding, we do not wish to receive anything in return. The funding is not offered as an inducement to prescribe, supply, administer, recommend, buy, or sell any Pharmacosmos medicines.
