The Medical technology grants from Barncancer Fonden support projects in the field of medical technology from clinicians, scientists, and companies. The purpose is to highlight and solve problems related to medical technology relevant to children with cancer, and to enable adaption of existing medical technology to children with cancer. The research proposal should proceed from a clear medical research problem and contain a description of the project's relevance for children with cancer. A proposal for technical solution is also to be described. Barncancerfonden defines medical technology as products associated with medicine with the exceptions pharmaceuticals and biotechnology. This includes, but is not limited to, radiation technology, orthopedical implants, minimal invasive surgery, aids for people with disabilities, adaption of analysis techniques, IT support, and disposable items. This also includes child-adapted design of existing products in order to facilitate medical treatment of children. Despite the definition of medical technology, applications at the intersection between medical technology and biotechnology may also be considered.

Eligibility:

Projects are applied for by a constellation of partners with at least one clinician and at least one researcher within technology. One of the partners is main applicant and the other partners are co-applicants. The main applicant for a research project must hold a Swedish doctoral degree or an equivalent foreign degree. Applicants for the other project categories do not need a doctoral degree. The main applicant has the scientific responsibility for the project. Companies may be co-applicants in the proposal but not grant recipients. Companies may in exceptional cases be the technology part of the constellation, especially for applications for development projects and projects for clinical adjustment for children.

Funding for fundamental research projects is applied for by an individual scientist that has, or intend to locate, the main activity in one of the Nordic countries. Funding for the other project categories is applied for by an individual scientist that has, or intend to locate, the main activity in Sweden. Funding for international projects may be granted under the prerequisite that the main applicant is situated in Sweden and that the research results are relevant for children with cancer in Sweden. The project should have active participation from a partner based in Sweden (main or co-applicant).

Applicants may apply for funds to cover research costs, including operating costs, minor equipment, publication costs, travel costs and salary costs for up to 3 years.

The next applications close on September 8, 2023.
