Conquering Cancer: Mission Impossible
As an integral part of the Horizon Europe Framework Programme for Research and Innovation (2021- 2027), a set of European Research and Innovation Missions aim to deliver solutions to some of the greatest challenges facing Europe. Cancer is one of these challenges. This Mission outline explains how a mission-driven approach can save and improve the lives of millions of European citizens exposed to cancer and its risk factors. It sets out the goal of the Mission on Cancer and makes recommendations on how to achieve this goal.
Pedro Pita Barros, Nova SBE Health Economics & Management Knowledge Center Scientific Director, is a member of the Mission Board for EU Mission on Cancer and works as an Ambassador of the Mission Board for Cyprus, Portugal and Spain. The Mission Board delivered in September 2020 its recommendations for a Cancer Mission objectives and initiatives to the European Commission. The Mission Board is currently working toward concrete actions to be suggested, under Horizon Europe and under policy-oriented actions.
