Annual Event 2018
Designing FP9 – a closer look on the impact of European cancer research
"Cancer is a much feared disease. What is state of the art in cancer research – and how should European research collaboration be designed if we want to make further progress in this field? Successful collaborative partnerships in cancer research do already exist and could serve as a model for further positive development. What actions do we have to take on European level? Are there risks we do have to avoid?
The event will also provide an outlook on the EU future framework programme: What needs to be done in order to maximize the impact of cancer research? Could it be worth a “mission”? What in general would be success factors for future missions?"
These are some of the questions that were addressed during the Helmholtz annual event in Brussels in April 2018.
