Kreftforeningen - Cancer Treatment

The Norwegian Cancer Society has launched a call on late effects of cancer treatment. Deadline: September 5, 2018.

The Norwegian Cancer Society’s aim is to work to prevent and fight cancer, and to ensure the best quality of life for patients and their families.

Late effects of Cancer Treatment

Many cancer patients experience health problems after going through cancer treatment. The late effects of treatment may not appear until years later, and may be both physical and psychological. They encourage research that increases knowledge about how to prevent and reduce late effects of cancer treatment, and provides insight into how we may increase the quality of life for those suffering from them.

Specifically, they seek to fund

  • Clinical research on treatment methods that reduce late effects
  • Research aimed at developing methods for coping with and managing late effects, including rehabilitation


In addition to conducting research on late effects, the applicant must:

  • Hold a doctoral degree or other equivalent qualification
  • Be associated with a Norwegian university, university college, hospital, or other institution with research as part of its activities.
Those that have active projects from Kreftforeningen in 2019 may not apply.


Funding per proposal: 1-8 million NOK
Duration: 1-4 years

Funding available in total: 30 million NOK
