Knowledge Centre on Cancer

We foster scientific and technical coordination of EU activities on cancer, while expanding the EU’s capacities and systems for prevention, early detection, treatment and care.

What we do

The Knowledge Centre on Cancer fosters independent scientific alignment, coordination and support to EC cancer-related policies and activities. We act as

  • evidence-clearing house for policy making on cancer prevention, early detection, treatment and survivorship.
  • manager of the EU Cancer Information System.
  • developer of European guidelines and quality assurance schemes on cancer.
  • data hub for cancer and ‘honest data broker’ via the European Health Data Space. We link different infrastructures with each other and work to standardise the data collection and exchange.
