Society Grant Opportunities

The Society Grant allows Fellows the opportunity to benefit from this high quality workshop.

These grants enable participants to cover travelling expenses, accommodation, and all of the materials during the Workshop and covers up to 40% of the course. The amount allocated to a Society Grant is set to EUR 3 500. This ensures that students also have to contribute to support their participation and those students selected to receive a Grant will still not be exempt from paying the EUR 2 500 Workshop participant fee.

By awarding a Society Grant, your Society will be contributing to the very specific aims of the Workshop which are:

  • To train a group of young oncologists from any discipline of your choice in the principles of good clinical trial design giving them the tools needed to conduct those trials that will yield clear results and have the potential to impact on future research and clinical practice;
  •  To educate oncologists who are in training posts to the full spectrum of challenges in clinical research, from trials involving conventional antineoplastic agents, radiotherapy and multidisciplinary treatment regimens to gene therapy and targeted treatments, in the expectation that they will want to devote all or a portion of their future careers to some aspect of clinical research;
  • To develop an expanding base of well-trained experienced researches whose expertise will foster better clinical trial designs and thereby hasten the introduction of improved regimens for cancer therapy and prevention into everyday medical practice and patient care.
