Experimental, Clinical and Epidemiological Cancer Research - Funding Opportunities

The Scientific Committee (KBVU) will evaluate the applications.

Precondition for obtaining funding

The precondition for obtaining funding is that the applicant can accept:

The Danish Cancer Society's ethical guidelines 

The Danish Code of Conduct for Research Integrity

Funding for clinical trials

The Danish Cancer Society offers the opportunity to apply for funding for clinical trials that test new treatments or treatment combinations that may increase the possibility of cure or prolong survival. Studies in improving diagnostics are not included. Thus, funding is given to investigator-initiated studies, including early studies such as phase I and II trials, as well as pilot and feasibility projects that can form the basis for the design of major clinical trials, and create data that strengthen larger funding applications. The funding from the Danish Cancer Society is intended to supplement funding from other sources, e.g. from hospital, region and external funds, and cannot be expected to fully cover the costs of the study. No funding is provided for studies that are part of normal diagnosis and treatment of the disease in question - these expenses are expected to be defrayed by the clinical departments.

A maximum of DKK 1 million can be applied for a period of 1-2 years. The Danish Cancer Society does not support overhead expenses. The project must not be financed by the pharmaceutical or medico-technical industries.

Please note that grants are conditional upon sufficient, earmarked funding for the highest priority projects among the applications received. Fundraising for the highest priority projects will begin after the scientific assessment in the beginning of 2020, and the selected applicants must be prepared to be at Danish Cancer Society's disposal for the preparation of material for marketing and fundraising of the project, including among other things. text, photo and video material.
