Horizon Europe Mission Board on Cancer: administrative and scientific support to the making of a final report on its activities, 2021 - ongoing

Duration: Nov 2021 - Jun 2022

Background
The EU consortium will provide support in managing the Horizon Europe Mission Board on Cancer. Therefore it has planned 13 webinars to support the implementation of the Mission on Cancer. For some of these meetings, the Mission Board will be joined by a group of citizens or stakeholders. Several meetings will be organized with the Steering Group on Health Promotion, Disease Prevention (SGPP), subgrpup Management of Non-Communicable Diseases.

Aim
Nivel will support the Mission Board on Cancer by drafting a discussion paper on the options and directions for the implementation of mission actions the board has outlined. Also we support the making of the final implementation plan produced by the European Commission.

Result
The discussion paper should feed into the discussions of the SGPP subgroup on cancer and the programming of Horizon Europe. For the subgroup, the discussion paper should define draft concepts for the implementation of actions, including identifying actors and resources. We will prepare, guide, analyze and report on the discussions of the six focus with patient groups, including citizens and various subgroups of people who had personal experience with cancer.
