Research Infrastructure - EOSC4Cancer Highlighted as a Success Story

We are proud to announce that EOSC4Cancer has been highlighted by the European Research Executive Agency as a Research Infrastructure Success Story.  

Research Infrastructures is one of the key components of Horizon Europe’s  Excellence Science structure. Read more about the agency’s aim and policies  here.

Deliverable 5.1 Published

Deliverable 5.1, produced by EOSC4Cancer’s WP5, is now published and available to the public! This deliverable, titled “A guidance document for the EOSC4Cancer learning pathway”, represents a consolidation of Work Package 5’s efforts in designing learning paths within the EOSC4Cancer framework, in close collaboration with ongoing initiatives both within and beyond the EOSC4Cancer project, such as the ELIXIR Learning Paths Focus Group leadership.

EOSC4Cancer is Represented at the EOSC Winter School

From the 29th of January through the 1st of February, partner projects from the EOSC Association, the RAISE Science consortium, and other Horizon Europe related projects, gathered in the first edition of the EOSC Winter School. This event took place in Thessaloniki, and aimed to promote a deeper understanding of specific opportunity areas and integrate the deliverables of the EOSC Association Task forces into the respective projects.

A workshop hosted in Heidelberg gathered European cancer experts to identify ongoing initiatives, among them EOSC4Cancer, that may contribute to building a platform that connects cancer research accross Member States and discuss the governance and long-
term evolution of a European Federated Cancer Data Hub. The outcomes were highlighted in a paper by Boutros et al., 2024.

Roadmap for a European Cancer Data Management and Precision Medicine Infrastructure

Gold-standard cancer data management is pivotal to enable precision medicine for European citizens. Achieving this goal relies on adopting standardized data formats, ensuring robust data privacy, and more. All these efforts, of which EOSC4Cancer is part of, are highlighted on this paper by Nikolski et al., 2024.

ECCAM Event 2024

In light of the European Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month (ECCAM), Digestive Cancers Europe (DiCE) is hosting for the first time a discussion session on the importance of Advancing the Prevention and Understanding of Colorectal Cancer in Younger Patients to Save More Lives on 29 February 2024, from 10 am to 12 pm (CET).

Social Media Series - Burden of Cancer

The Burden of Cancer is considerable – in the European Union, cancer is the second leading cause of death among citizens, right after cardiovascular diseases.

EOSC4Cancer is part of the initiatives organized by the EU to increase prevention, early diagnosis, and accurate therapies for cancer patients. Another one of our goals is to constantly spread information about cancer and the EU Cancer Mission, in light of which we currently have a series on our LinkedIn and Twitter (X).
