The AIRC Start-Up grant program is for talented young scientists with a strong commitment to cancer research, seeking the opportunity of becoming independent investigators and setting up their own lab in Italy after a successful research experience abroad.

The grant amount is up to 1 million euro in 5 years.

• must not have been back in Italy for more than 12 months by the deadline;
• must have at least 2 first/co-first, last/co-last, corresponding/co-corresponding primary research paper in the last 5 years;

Applicants should be 35 years old or younger by the time of the submission application’s deadline. Some degree of flexibility to this age-limit is applied (provided that applicants meet the other eligibility criteria), but in case of equal merit preference will be given to younger candidates.

The 2021 call is now open, click here to find out more (deadline March 5). Don’t miss this opportunity to establish a new independent laboratory in Italy!
