The program includes speakers from six countries and covers both clinical and preclinical aspects of pain research and treatment. We expect to have around 120 delegates, mostly from the Scandinavian countries. The meeting will take place in Biomedicum at the Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm (Solna). The area for poster presentations, exhibitions and coffee, and lunch service is located in connection to the auditorium to which only registered meeting participants have access. Additionally, a PhD student course will precede the meeting. The major themes of the meeting will be visceral pain, widespread pain, pain and sleep, and glia cells and pain.

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.

Today, the vast majority of cancer survivors across Europe are confronted with daily discrimination which sees them blocked from being able to secure the loans and mortgages they need to pursue their lives. This crucial event will therefore focus on the implementation of the Right to be Forgotten, a right that can help ensure that former cancer patients no longer suffer from financial discrimination following the end of their treatment.
This discrimination needs to come to an end which is why, one year after the launch event of the EU’s Beating Cancer Plan, this event will provide a platform for key stakeholders to collaborate on identifying the right path for the implementation of this right across Europe. Given the growing number of cancer survivors in Europe, we now have over 14 million reasons to discuss not only the need for an EU approach to the Right to be Forgotten but also the implementation of a right that has now been widely recognised by European policymakers.
Thanks to medicine’s tremendous progress, cancer is no longer a death sentence. Let’s make sure we give cancer survivors every reason to continue their lives after cancer.
