This web page has been machine translated. If there are any uncertainties, please refer to the Swedish text.

During this information meeting you will get a background to Mission Cancer and hear more about what has happened so far at EU and national level in the work towards the mission. You will also hear about future investments and opportunities such as the flagship projects ( and European Cancer Patient Digital Centre)) which are developed within the framework of Mission Cancer.

The goal of Mission Cancer is to improve the lives of 3 million people before 2030 through prevention, treatment and increased quality of life for those affected by cancer and their families. In order to reach this ambitious objective, the EU is working to contribute to increasing collaboration between different sectors such as healthcare and research. With the ambition to work mission-oriented, cross-border collaborations between actors such as researchers, companies, authorities, regions and civil society are encouraged.

  • Caroline Ekstrand, programme manager in the area health and expert within the working group for Mission Cancer, Vinnova.

The event is aimed at actors who want to gain a better understanding of Mission Cancer. The goal of the meeting is to increase the level of knowledge ahead of future calls for proposals within Mission Cancer. The calls for proposals are expected to open in April 2024.

The meeting is held in Swedish and will not be recorded.
