About IARC


IARC activities are mainly funded by the regular budget contributions paid by its Participating States. The regular budget for the 2016-2017 biennium was approved in May 2015 at a level of 43 413 599 EUR. 

However, the Agency continues to attract substantial extra-budgetary resources, mainly through competitive grants from funding agencies. The expenditure on grants in 2015 was roughly one third of IARC's overall budget.

Major funding sources include the European Commission, the US National Institutes of Health, the World Cancer Research Fund International, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and both charitable and governmental sources in France, such as ANSES, ARC, CLARA, FINOVI, FDF, and LNCC. The list of active grants is included in the link below.
