Announcement LiU Cancer research grants 2019

A major goal for LiU Cancer is to encourage researchers at Linköping University to apply for and hold more excellent grants in the cancer area.

By this grant slot, we want to recognize and further support excellent cancer research at LiU. Active participation (poster, oral) in the LiU Cancer Retreat of 2018 for at least one co-applicant is required to be eligible for this grant. Reports  from previous grants from LiU Cancer and  progress reports of ongoing projects are requirements for further funding. 

We encourage novel collaborative projects and constellations as well as continuation of successful projects previously supported by LiU Cancer. LiU Cancer supports projects which involves PIs (docent or above) from two or more research areas within LiU. The applications will be ranked based on novelty, scientific value and cancer relevance.

Preferably at least one of the applicants should have ongoing excellence grants recognized by LiU: Cancerfonden, EU-kommissionen, EU:s forsknings- och utvecklingsprogram,  Formas, Forte, Hjärt-Lungfonden, KA Wallenbergs stiftelse, National Institute of Health, Riksbankens jubileumsfond (RJF), Stiftelsen för Strategisk Forskning, and Vetenskapsrådet. In addition to these, we will also recognize grants from Vinnova and Barncancerfonden. The applications will be evaluated based on their relevance for cancer research.
