Programa CRIS Out-Back


CRIS Cancer is keenly aware of the difficulty faced by clinicians and scientists who want to train themselves in the best international cancer research centers but keeping focus and interest in developing their research in Spain. To help address this, since 2021, CRIS Cancer is annually holding a call for applications to the CRIS Out-Back Fellowship, which exists to train outstanding scientists and medical doctors of any nationality who wish to train themselves in any foreign country and return to Spain, in order to develop their cancer research career in Spanish research centers, hospitals or universities and become the future leaders of cancer research.

The aim of the CRIS Out-Back Fellowship is to provide competitive economic conditions and incentives for these doctors or experienced researcher to develop their training abroad and establish their career in Spain. CRIS Cancer believes that the training of researchers should go farther than the purely practical and scientific. For this reason, the awardees will be involved in a training plan that will provide them with mentoring and essential skills and insights to become future leaders of cancer research.

Annually CRIS Cancer awards two research grants covering a maximum of 5-year stage fellowship for contracting scientists and clinical investigators to develop their training and research activity for a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 4 years abroad (Outgoing Stage) at any hospital, research center or university, and for a minimum of 1 year and a maximum of 2 years at any research institution in Spain (Return Stage).

It is foreseen that the IV CRIS Out-Back Fellowship edition call will be open from 1 March until 15 May 2024.

On 3rd April it was held a webinar in order to clarify any doubts that might arise in relation to these calls. To watch the video, go here
