In the area of research funding, the Swiss Cancer Research Foundation works closely with its partner organization, the Swiss Cancer League. Twice a year, they jointly award funds to support selected research projects. The funding organization is indicated in the contracting letter and the contract and can be seen from the project number :
- If your project number starts with KFS (e.g. KFS-3472-11-2016) it is funded by the Swiss Cancer Research foundation.
- If your project number starts with KLS (e.g. KLS-3472-11-2016) it is funded by the Swiss Cancer League.
Example how to acknowledge funding in research publications:
- This work was funded by the Swiss Cancer Research foundation [KFS-XXXX-MM-2021]'.
- This work was funded by the Swiss Cancer League [KLS-XXXX-MM-2021]'.
Acknowledgements are much more than thank you notes. They enable us to monitor and evaluate the outputs of the research we fund.
If you are funded by us, you must list the funding organization – either Swiss Cancer Research foundation or Swiss Cancer League – and your grant reference number in all your research publications related to the grant.
Exmple: This work was funded by the Swiss Cancer Research foundation [KFS-XXXX-MM-2021]
Login to the Grant Application Portal (GAP) and navigate to My Grants. Select the project on which you wish to report your progress. Than, select Research Outputs and Import. Fill in the Search frame (you need not fill in all fields) and select the record you wish to import.
Tip: The Information sheet «Reporting the progress of your grant or fellowhip» on the webpage can also be very helpful.
