About the EONS Research Grant

Why we created the EONS Research Grant

The EONS Research Grant, known until 2014 as the Major Research Grant, is designed to allow a nurse researcher to carry out a significant project. The recipient of the grant must be a European oncology nurse researcher, qualified to at least masters’ degree level. The grant was created to fund a substantial research project which will have an impact on clinical practice in at least one European country.

From 2015 the grant amount will increase to EUR 40,000.
