“Better Understanding of the Impact of Risk Factors and Health Determinants on the Development and Progression of Cancer” within the framework of Horizon Europe Program
The purpose of the call: contribute to a better understanding of the impact of risk factors and health determinants on the development and progression of cancer (including metastasis). The focus should be on poorly understood cancers and cancer subtypes, including in children and adolescents. To that end, proposals under this topic should aim for delivering results that are directed, tailored towards and contributing to all of the following expected outcomes:
- Researchers and health professionals will understand which risk factors and determinants spur the development and progression of cancer and how. This forms the basis for the design and optimization of prevention, screening and early detection interventions for poorly understood cancers and cancer subtypes, including in children and adolescents.
- Researchers and innovators from different disciplines and sectors will support the development of the UNCAN.eu platform by producing, integrating and correlating comprehensive data from multiple sources (ensuring accessibility and re-usability of data, models and tools created).
- Health Policy Makers use the improved understanding of risk factors and determinants in the design of cancer-related health policies in the EU-27 and Associated countries and beyond, including for prevention, screening and early detection.
Deadline – April 26, 2022.
