Nordic Cancer Union Research grant 2019

The Nordic Cancer Union (NCU) provides funding to support and stimulate collaborative cancer research within the Nordic countries. Researchers working in two Nordic countries or more must be involved in the project. The research project must be cancer relevant and uniquely suited to be carried out within the Nordic countries, and the effect of collaboration should be synergistic.

Funding is restricted to research that is in line with the NCU's research strategy. The research strategy was adopted by the NCU Board on May 26, 2014. For more information, please see NCU website.

NCU research grants are provided for one year. Further support for the project will require a new, yearly application. As a general rule, project funding can only be renewed twice; a project can obtain funding from the NCU for a total of maximum three years.

For more information, please see the attached pdf and the NCU website.

The application deadline is 2 September 2019 at 15:00.

Note that the electronic application form must be completed in English. Apply here.
