Call for Proposals on Early Detection of Cancer

Early Detection and Diagnosis of Cancer Roadmap – Building bridges for collaboration and impact

We are pleased to announce that, following on from our joint workshop with Cancer Research UK on the subject of Early Detection of Cancer, FAST Healthcare is now opening up an open call for proposals.

The aim of this Call is to build new research collaborations across disciplines and organisations which address the specific Roadmap for Early Detection of Cancer research which the FAST NetworksPlus has produced.  This should lead on to a more substantial research programme which enhances research in the UK that aligns with the EPSRC’s Healthcare Technologies Theme.

Awards are limited to a maximum of £56,000 (based on a funding rate of 80% of full economic cost) and should last up to 6 months.  It is expected that typical proposals will be for a duration of around 6 months, and the Management Committee expect to make up to two awards.

Applications can only be submitted by academic and postdoctoral research staff at UK universities and associated research institutions that are eligible to receive EPSRC funding; applications by early career researchers are particularly welcome.  Participation of industrial, clinical and other partners is encouraged, but they cannot receive grant funding. Awards are limited to a maximum value of £56,000 at 80% of full economic cost (i.e £70,000 full economic cost) and must have a duration of no more than 6 months.  Smaller and shorter projects are welcomed.

  • Call launch: Tuesday, 28th April 2020
  • Closing date for applications: 5:00 pm on Monday, 1st June 2020
  • Award announced: late June 2020
  • Projects are expected to start 1 August 2020
