Boost the impact of cancer research and innovation, through collaboration and EU funding. Welcome to a meeting where we bring together northern Sweden's capacity in this area. We will share experiences, good examples, ongoing projects and current calls within Horizon Europe and other EU funding opportunities.
Horizon Europe, EU's framework programme for research and innovation, that addresses global challenges and sustainable development. Horizon Europe runs from 2021-2027 and has a budget of over €95 billion. Cancer is a major area in the programme. Northern Sweden has a lot of knowledge and expertise in the field of cancer. This provides us with good opportunities for future collaboration and new applications for funding.
For whom? Researchers, companies, and clinicians working in or related to the field of cancer.
The event will be held in english.
Where? You can participate in this event physical or digital.
