The deadline to sign the application in Fenix is Thursday 1st October 2020 at 3pm.
The Swedish Cancer Society, organization number 802005-3370, 101 55 Stockholm, is the body responsible for the collection and processing of personal data in connection with grant applications.
The Swedish Cancer Society has a digitized grant application system called Fenix. Fenix uses BankID and Swedish social security numbers for both identification and signing. The application is signed digitally by both the Head of Department and the applicant directly in Fenix. Applicants sign the application last, i.e. after the Head of Department has signed.
Note that if you make changes to the application after sending it to the Head of Department for signing, you must send a new request for signing by your Head of Department, as the application has changed. This applies regardless of what changes have been made.
The grant is intended to facilitate the operation of Graduate Schools aimed at the target group of postgraduate students with projects within the field of cancer.
For legal reasons, the Swedish Cancer Society pays research grants only to Swedish universities and colleges.
The Graduate School shall offer the participants postgraduate education within the framework described by the corresponding university or college's postgraduate education committee.
Graduate Schools run jointly by two or more higher education institutions located in different healthcare regions will be given special consideration, as will those that are based on an appropriate balance between clinically and pre-clinically active graduate students.
The support is thus partly intended to encourage cooperation across regional borders and between different higher education institutions with the aim of promoting networking.
It is also the Swedish Cancer Society's intention to stimulate networking between different disciplines. The higher education institutions included in the application must have at least one named applicant.
The application must state the names of the principal applicant and any co-applicants.
Eligible to apply are those with a university affiliation and at least associate professor competence.
The grant is for three years, and the grant period usually begins on 1 July of the same year as the award. For exceptional reasons the start of the grant period may be postponed for a maximum of 6 months, but no later than 1st January of the year following the award.
Grants can be used for external teachers and lecturers, board and lodging, travel, course administration, course materials and other direct course operation costs. This may include rental costs for lecture halls and the like, but not for the regular premises used by university employees.
The grant may not be used as salary for participating doctoral students. A prerequisite for awarding grants is that there is a budget showing how students' salaries and other expenses are to be covered. In addition the grant is not intended to cover the costs of basic general science courses within the corresponding university's graduate program.
Grants can be awarded up to SEK 800,000 per year.
Payment of grants is made only to the principal applicant's university or college for further distribution in accordance with the specified budget plan.
The application is assessed according to the following assessment criteria:
The plan must contain the following seven headings:
When you have completed your application, you must send it to your Head of Department by going into the "Preview/Förhandsgranska" tab.

Note that if you make changes to the application after sending it to the Head of for signing, you must send a new request for signing by your Head of Department, as the application has changed. This applies regardless of what changes have been made.
When the Head of Department has signed the application digitally with BankID, you as the applicant will receive an email. You can then log in and sign the application digitally with BankID. This should be done no later than 1st October 2020 at 3pm.
The deadline for signing the application is Thursday 1st October at 3pm.
Decisions will be made at a meeting of the Research Committee in March 2021.

When transferring grants to another administrative authority or to another institution within the current university or college, the application for transfer must be made in Fenix with digital signing / approval from both the current and receiving Heads of Department.
Not later than three months (see contract) after the end of the period of performance, a report must be submitted via Fenix. Unused funds must be repaid. The Scientific Report must be attached as a PDF file.
