The Nordic Cancer Union’s 2017 call for research grant proposals has opened 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 Nordic Cancer Union Board on May 26, 2014. 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 visit the NCU website. The application deadline for this year’s call for research grant proposals is Friday, September 1, 2017 at 13:00. Please read the Guidelines for NCU Research Grant Proposals and Allocations 2017 before starting the application process. Note that only proposals submitted through the web portal will be accepted.
