New funding opportunities from KWF: supporting large consortia and collaboration with industry

July 07 2016

KWF has recently launched a new funding initiative to support large consortia and partnerships between academia and industry working in the oncology field. The purpose of this cooperation is to fast-track results from scientific research to practical applications in the stride against cancer. 

By financing public-private partnerships, KWF actively encourages researchers to cooperate from an early stage with companies to ease the translation of knowledge obtained during research studies into practical applications. This will provide universities with the unique opportunity to collaborate with industry to push their ideas forward. Moreover, this call has no budget restrictions and therefore can support large clinical studies.

This initiative will empower the new KWF funding strategy available for application since 27 June 2016.

Subsidy details

To participate in this call, at least one of the following criteria must be met:
