Scientific conferences

The Swiss Cancer Research Foundation is committed to the continuing education and networking of scientists in the field of oncology. This funding scheme is in place for researchers seeking funding for organizational costs of a scientific conference in Switzerland.

Applications for this funding scheme are accepted year-round, but we recommend applying as early as possible. The Swiss Cancer Research foundation can provide financial support for the organization of scientific conferences that are highly relevant to cancer research. Financial aid provided is to be applied towards costs incurred by the invited speakers' travel and accommodation expenses.
