The Research Support Office (RSO) team at CCRI provides constant assistance to its researchers and collaborators in generating high-quality proposals and grant acquisition.

The RSO team counts with specialised expertise in National and International Grants to support the investigators with the day-to-day project management, monitoring milestones and fulfilment of project deliverables, staff and facility administration, punctual scientific and financial reporting to granting agencies, and publication of grant-financed results. 

The RSO is also engaged in supporting students and postdocs working at the CCRI to prepare their career development plans and to apply for a wide range of individual grants.

Private donations and Public funds

Private donations from the Austrian population significantly contribute to the adequate financial resources which are required to maintain the high quality of scientific work provided by the CCRI. The Association “St. Anna Kinderkrebsforschung e.V.” supports the CCRI by fundraising activities based on the support from our loyal donors.
Further financing needs are met with public funds. The CCRI has successfully managed to obtain well-funded external grants and establish adequate national and international collaborations to gain access to sophisticated methods, highly expensive technologies and state-of-the-art equipment.

We would like to express our gratitude to the numerous private donors who have been loyal in their support for many years, as well as to the following national and international funding bodies and organisations:

Austrian Academy of Sciences (ÖAW) / Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG) / Austrian Science Fund (FWF) / Austrian Society of Paediatrics and Adolescent Medicine (ÖGKJ) / EU 5th, 6th and 7th Framework Programs (FP5, FP6, FP7) /  EUREKA's Eurostars Programme / Fund of the City of Vienna /  "Genomforschung in Austria" of the Federal Ministry of Science and Research (BMWF) / Herzfelder'sche Familienstiftung / HHV-6 Foundation / Anniversary Fund of the Austrian National Bank (Österreichische Nationalbank, OeNB) / Technology Promotion Agency of the City of Vienna (ZIT) / Vienna Science and Technology Fund (WWTF)
