Blue Sky Research Grants

The StratCan Blue Sky Research Grant for Innovative Cancer Research is a one-year grant to support an innovative pilot project aiming at demonstrating proof of principle.

About the Grant

The project should be of a "high risk and high reward" type that cannot yet attract conventional funding. The aim should be to obtain proof of principle and thereby provide the basis to obtain other funding. The project should be unrelated to the applicant´s already funded projects.

The grant is a one-year grant amounting to SEK 500 000 and can cover all kinds of project-related costs, except from stipends.

The projects are assessed with regard to originality and potential impact and they are subjected to external review.
