Canadian Cancer Society Research Institute - Innovation Grants

Innovation grants have been created to support innovative, creative problem solving in cancer research. As competition for grant funding increases, peer review panels become more conservative and risk averse, emphasizing feasibility more than innovation. The goal of this CCSRI grant program is to support unconventional concepts, approaches or methodologies to address problems in cancer research. Innovation projects will include elements of creativity, curiosity, investigation, exploration and opportunity. Successful projects may be based on "high risk" ideas, but will have the potential for "high reward" (i.e. to significantly impact the understanding of cancer and generate new approaches to combat the disease by introducing novel ideas into use or practice).
