EJP RD – Networking Support Scheme (NSS)

The first aim of the Networking Support Scheme in the European Joint Programme on Rare Diseases (EJP RD) is to encourage sharing of knowledge on rare diseases or rare cancers between health care professionals, researchers and patients in new or expanding research networks by funding networking events.

The second aim of the Networking Support Scheme is to enable or increase the participation of usually underrepresented countries in Europe in new and in expanding research networks on rare diseases or rare cancers.

The scheme will provide financial support to applicants to organize workshops or conferences. These workshops or conferences are meant to
1. Form new research networks or expand existing research networks;
2. Strengthen collaborations between different stakeholders in different countries;
3. Enable the exchange of knowledge.
4. These workshops or conferences should be (the implications of) research results and innovative solutions. The results of these networking events may lead to future collaborative and novel research efforts.

IARC Summer School 2023 Call for Applications is Open

The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) is pleased to announce that it is now accepting applications for the IARC Summer School 2023, for two modules: "Introduction to Cancer Epidemiology" and "Implementing Cancer Prevention and Early Detection".
The IARC Summer School 2023 provides the opportunity to stimulate cancer research, improve scientific knowledge, and develop collaborations among researchers worldwide. Building on past successful IARC Summer Schools, the two modules in 2023 will be delivered as blended training programmes, combining online learning with virtual and in-person classes. The hybrid format will offer the best of remote learning and the unmatched value of relationships formed during face-to-face events and their effect on boosting network-building and future collaborations.
Those who want to attend the summer school module on "Implementing Cancer Prevention and Early Detection" should first take the self-paced course on cancer prevention and early detection, which is available on the IARC Learning portal. This self-paced learning path will take participants through various resources, which cover the basic concepts and principles related to cancer prevention and early detection. See the links below for more information.

Horizon Europe – ERC Proof of Concept Grant

Horizon Europe – ERC Proof of Concept Grant (ERC-2023-POC)
The ERC Proof of Concept Grants aim at facilitating exploration of the commercial and social innovation potential of ERC funded research, by funding further work (i.e. activities which were not scheduled to be funded by the original ERC frontier research grant) to verify the innovation potential of ideas arising from ERC funded projects. Proof of Concept Grants are therefore on offer only to Principal Investigators whose proposals draw substantially on their ERC funded research.

The financial contribution will be awarded as a lump sum of EUR 150 000 for a period of 18 months. The ERC expects that, normally, proof of concept activities should be completed within 12 months. However, to allow for those projects that require more preparation time, the grant agreements will be signed for 18 months. Extensions of the duration of proof of concept projects may be granted only exceptionally.The lump sum will cover the beneficiaries' direct and indirect eligible costs for the project: if the project is implemented properly, the amounts will be paid regardless of the costs actually incurred. The lump sum has been designed to cover the beneficiaries’ personnel costs, subcontracting, purchase costs, other cost categories, and indirect costs.

All Principal Investigators in an ongoing ERC main grant or in a ERC main grant that has ended less than 12 months before 1 January 2023, are eligible to apply for an ERC Proof of Concept Grant.

For further information please see the ERC Work Programme 2023.
