Rising Tide Foundation for Clinical Cancer Research Launches “Pre-application grants”

October 28, 2021

The Rising Tide Foundation for Clinical Cancer Research (RTFCCR), has launched a new grant mechanism called “pre-application grants”. These small grants are to close the funding gap for patient experts to provide input to the development of a grant application/protocol.

We are aiming at supporting patient organizations during this early phase with a budget. The budget should be planned to cover travel costs to preparatory meetings and the work time invested by staff or patient experts. This work should be carried out as a preparation step to submit a clinical research grant application to RTFCCR. 

The pre-application grant has two components: 

  • Up to 1,000 EUR for funding travel/transport expenses for a patient expert to participate in meetings with the clinical team 
  • Up to 3,000 EUR to cover the work carried out by the patient association staff or patient experts The research project in question should be at pre-protocol development stage to ensure optimal integration of patients as partners and the development of a meaningful role, research objectives, and outcome measurements.
