TRANSCAN-2 has the goal of coordinating national and regional funding programmes for research in the area of translational cancer research. The specific challenge is to promote a transnational collaborative approach between scientific teams in demanding areas of translational cancer research while avoiding the duplication of efforts and ensuring a more efficient use of available resources, to produce significant results of higher quality and impact, and to share data and infrastructures.
To this end TRANSCAN-2 is launching its third Joint Transnational Call for research proposals (JTC 2016) with a focus on “Minimally and non-invasive methods for early detection and/or progression of cancer” to which the European Commission (EC) will contribute.
Please note that this call excludes invasive methods, such as image-guided biopsy or surgery.
Projects must cover at least one of the areas specified below, which are equal in relevance for this call:
Please note that full proposals will only be accepted from applicants explicitly invited by the JCS to submit.
Please note that, for applicants from some countries/regions, it may be necessary to submit their proposals and/or other information not only to the JCS, but also to their relevant national/regional funding organisations.
Based on the time required for the approval process for granting funds to the respective national/regional research groups, individual projects of a research consortium are expected to start in April 2018.
The JTC 2016 core documents and key deadlines can be found on the TRANSCAN website.
