Fight Kids Cancer
The European Science Foundation has announced a call within their Fight Kids Cancer programme. The programme aims to support research that improves the outcome for all children and adolescents with cancer. Expression of interest: December 06, 2020. Deadline: March 15, 2021.
About the call:
The call for projects aims towards overcoming the structural lack of research dedicated to paediatric cancers by ensuring a recurring endowment that will be granted to the best European research projects every year. An additional ambition is to foster closer working ties between basic researchers and clinicians. This call aims to prioritize areas that will effectively benefit young patients by:
- improving their survival rate
- improving their quality of life during and after the treatments
- improving our knowledge on cancer causes and treatment resistance
Projects are expected to propose research on either Early phase clinical trials or Translational research
The lead institution must be from the list of eligible countries (Norway is eligible), with preference given to institutions with a strong track record in paediatric cancer research. Other project partners are encouraged and can be from related fields of expertise, providing they operate as not-for-profit.
3 million euros will be awarded for clinical trials (with a maximum of 1,5 million per project) and translational projects (with a maximum of 500 000 euros per project).
