Canadian Cancer Society – Innovation Grants 2012
Innovation grants have been created to support innovative, creative problem solving in cancer research. The goal of this CCSRI grant program is to support unconventional concepts, approaches or methodologies to address problems in cancer research. Innovation projects will include elements of creativity, curiosity, investigation, exploration and opportunity. Successful projects may be based on “high risk” ideas, but will have the potential for “high reward” (i.e. to significantly impact our understanding of cancer and generate new approaches to combat the disease by introducing novel ideas into use or practice). Investigators are asked to review the program description to ensure that their project fits this unique funding mechanism. Please also view brief summaries of the most recently funded innovation grants.
Abstract registration must be completed in order to submit a full application.
Budgets awarded may be up to $100,000 per year and a maximum of $200,000 per grant.
