Beat Cancer Project
Beat Cancer Project Funding opportunities
The Beat Cancer Project is a South Australian state-wide initiative intended to support and advance cancer research within the state. It is funded by Cancer Council SA, the SA Government (through SA Health) and the Australian Government Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF) and administered by the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI).
The objectives of the Beat Cancer Project are to increase funding for cancer research, increase the capacity for researchers to attract more national and international research grants, and build a stronger cancer research workforce and broader research infrastructure in South Australia.
We ask potential applicants to refer to the Scheme-Specific Funding Guidelines for further information relating to each Scheme.
In addition to funding the schemes outlined in the table below, the Beat Cancer Project has committed funding for three Research Chairs, SANT DataLink and the Clinical Cancer Registry.
Successful applicants will be required to enter into a funding agreement with SAHMRI which includes requirements to meet with a representative of Cancer Council SA once a year to provide information in relation to the research being undertaken and provide a biography and synopsis of the research. The funding agreement also contains a number of requirements in relation to the acknowledgement of the funding source.
Researchers will be required to complete an online application form – the link to the form will be accessible on the date that the Scheme opens via the table below.
If you require further information about any of the above Schemes, please contact the Beat Cancer Project Officer via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
