One of the goals of MedUni Vienna’s Comprehensive Cancer Center (CCC) is to foster interdisciplinary translational research in the fields of malignant diseases. Therefore, biannually the research institution awards grants to outstanding and innovative projects in the field of translational cancer research, which are carried out at MedUni Vienna. An international expert jury reviews the submitted projects and selects the winners of the grants.
Another important concern of the Comprehensive Cancer Center is the promotion of young scientists. The CCC therefore specifically encourages young scientists to submit their excellent research projects.
The funding period is two years. A maximum of € 60,000 will be distributed per project. The submission deadline is February 15, 2021.
