Partners in Cancer Research - - National Cancer Research Institute


Please note that studies funded by the US National Institutes of Health (NIH) or European Framework Programmes only have medium priority regarding acceptance onto the NIHR Clinical Research Network Portfolio. This means the studies will need formal consideration prior to acceptance, rather than being automatically eligible.

EU Funding

CORDIS is the official entry point to Europe’s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). FP7 is the EU funding stream specifically for research and development, and consists of five distinct programmes, some requiring international partnerships. One of these five, the Cooperation Health workplan 2011, mentions trials for therapeutic interventions in elderly populations.

FP7 calls for proposals

Future calls of the European Agency for Health and Consumers may be of relevance to survivorship after cancer and end of life care. It is worth keeping an eye on this as a large amount of money is available for those who intend to conduct research with partners across Europe.


USA Funding

Some USA NIH grants are available to foreign (i.e. non-USA) applicants. For example, the Parent R01 Research Project Grant.
