Cluster event on Cancer Research and Innovation
Cancer is one of the European research and innovation (R&I) missions and part of the Horizon Europe Programme. Also, one of the priorities of the European Commission in the health domain, Europe’s beating cancer plan was developed to reduce the cancer burden for patients, their families, and health systems.
The Research Executive Agency (REA) and its units managing the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) organise a Cluster event in the area of Cancer Research and Innovation to provide opportunities for networking and policy feedback on the funded actions to the European Commission. The event will aim at showcasing cancer-related projects’ contribution to the state of the art of research and innovation on cancer, promoting discussion and getting a better understanding of current obstacles in fighting cancer to provide coordinated input to the relevant EU policy-making services, enhancing synergies among projects based on new scientific insights and stimulating networking opportunities.
Jan-Philipp Beck will participate as a panelist in a roundtable on 19 March from 14.30 to 16.00 which will address the fight against cancer from a policy point of view, looking at Europe’s Beating Cancer plan and Cancer Mission.
EIT Health activities will be featured at the event, including a session entitled “Quality of life of patients and survivors” presenting our Oncommun project which educates and supports cancer sufferers and their families through an online community.
Some of our best projects and innovators will also be showcased in thematic poster sessions.
The event is a two-day meeting fully online.
