Once you’ve chosen the Cancer Grand Challenge you are going to tackle, there are 3 simple steps you must take to apply – read our guidelines, complete the pre-submission questionnaire to confirm eligibility, and submit an expression of interest (EOI) application. Once the pre-submission questionnaire is submitted, we will contact you to open your EOI application.
The Cancer Grand Challenges Scientific Committee review expressions of interest and shortlists teams with the greatest potential for impact.
Shortlisted teams receive seed funding of £30k to network and develop full proposals. The committee will then interview them and make a funding recommendation to CRUK. As funding partners, CRUK and NCI will make the final funding decisions.
