The aim of the 2023 Bladder Cancer Research Innovation Award is to support exceptionally novel and creative projects with great potential to produce breakthroughs in our understanding of bladder cancer. The proposed research may be fundamental, translational, clinical or epidemiological and must have direct applicability and relevance to bladder cancer. Applications to this funding mechanism must include innovative approaches and new ideas which may include, but are not limited to, novel theoretical concepts, approaches or methodologies, instrumentation, or interventions. Applications lacking innovative approaches will be considered non-responsive to this funding mechanism.

Projects that are high-risk and high-reward, as opposed to incremental in nature, are required. Essential elements of this award mechanism include the following: does the project address (i) an important problem and/or critical barrier to progress in the field of bladder cancer research? (ii) an area in which there is a significant gap in current knowledge? Proposals will be accepted for creative ideas and innovative approaches that have direct application and relevance to bladder cancer. Proposals for innovative projects that will develop preliminary data necessary to prepare and submit a competitive research grant application to a major funding agency are encouraged.
