Who we are

CCI4EU is a Network to Improve Cancer Education, Research and Care

54 Partners from 27 European Member States and 5 Associate Countries work together to develop recommendations on how to structure future capacity building projects and how to develop and scale up National / Regional Comprehensive Cancer Infrastructures.
A well organised structure ensures scientific efficiency, along with efficient administration, and guarantees adequate progress and successful completion of CCI4EU by coordinating the best communication between the Partners.
