Can-Grant: Cancer Australia’s grant management system


Can-Grant is Cancer Australia’s new portal for investigators, reviewers, Research Administration Officers, eligible organisations, and Cancer Australia staff to manage the entire lifecycle of the grants process from application to the post-award activities. 




Technical Issues with Can-Grant 

Cancer Australia is aware that applicants were experiencing technical issues with Can-Grant around the upload of XML files from Sapphire and the validity of the imported data.

These issues have now been resolved. To fix the issue, you will need to download a new version of the .xml file from Sapphire, and upload this version into Can-Grant. Earlier versions of the .xml file will continue to generate issues and should not be used.

Cancer Australia has extended the deadline for the close of the 2023 PdCCRS Clinical Trials and Cohort Studies Grant Round to 6 September 2023 to enable applicants to finalise and submit their applications.
