On 25 January 2023 TRAMI organized the 1st European Mission Forum EMiF: “Making Missions Work” bringing together 800+ Mission stakeholders from over 50 countries online and connecting EU Missions stakeholders, from the business sector, civil society organisations, the governmental sector, and the research and innovation community.
The event offered participants an opportunity to learn about other EU Mission actors from outside their usual networks.
The ‘4.UNCAN.eu’ CSA was represented by Chloé Jégo, a member of the project management team. During the discussion following the last Panel Session of the event, ‘Thematic Missions Projects’, Chloé highlighted the major challenges for the successful implementation of the EU Mission on Cancer, which are:
- to align and connect overlapping ongoing programs and initiatives, all across Europe and in each Member State or Region to create together a European Federated Cancer Research Data Hub
- to identify a series of scientific and medical challenges in cancer research that could be tackled at the European level and generate the first series of data to be included in the European Federated Cancer Research Data Hub following FAIR principles
- to propose a governance model and a strategy to make UNCAN.eu a sustainable organization with the support of people with expertise in governance in International government systems and health data
- to get EU citizens and cancer patients informed and actively engaged in UNCAN.eu
- to reduce inequities in cancer research and data generation and sharing among Member States in Europe
