The Scientific Direction of the Institute for Cancer Research at Candiolo supervises, coordinates and manages the basic, translational and clinical scientific research in the Institute. To this end, the Grant Office provides the scientific support for IRC@C research activities and acts as a liaison between researchers and funding agencies.
The Grant Office assists researchers in identifying appropriate research funding opportunities, centralizing all information on major national and international, private or public, agencies, foundations, and institutions that support research.
Whenever a call for a research grant is issued, it is advertised throughout the Institute by e-mail. The Grant Office provides assistance to researchers in the preparation of applications, in the drawing up of the budget - together with the administrative office of the Institute -, in completing the application forms and interpreting the regulations of the granting agencies, assuring compliance with the sponsors’ policies and requirements.
In case of successful outcome of the proposals, the Grant Office helps in preparing reports, consortium agreements with collaborating institutions, and renewal forms.
