About the Mission

Together with Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan, the EU Cancer Mission is the European Commission’s response to addressing the increasing cancer burden which represents a growing societal challenge.

Being part of the Beating Cancer Plan, the Mission brings together research, innovation and public health policies in ways that cannot be achieved through individual research activities and policy actions at EU, national, regional and local levels. Through its investments and engagement with citizen and stakeholders, the Mission is key for delivering the objectives and actions of the Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan, in particular by generating and sharing new evidence and delivering innovative concepts that shape policy actions in each of the four Mission objectives, i.e., understanding, prevention and early detection, diagnosis and treatment, and quality of life.

The EU Cancer Mission also focusses on several transversal priorities, i.e. citizen and stakeholder engagement, accessibility for all, childhood cancer, innovation, and personalised medicine.
