A European-wide foundation to accelerate data-driven cancer research

Funding programme: Horizon 2020 (N 101058427)


Budget: €7.8M

Duration: 2.5 years (September 2022 - February 2025)

EOSC4Cancer will make diverse types of cancer data accessible: genomics, imaging, medical, clinical, environmental and socio-economic. It will use and enhance federated and interoperable systems for securely identifying, sharing, processing and reusing FAIR data across borders and offer them via community-driven analysis environments.

EOSC4Cancer’s well curated data sets will be essential input for reproducible and robust analytics and computational methods – including machine learning and artificial intelligence. EOSC4Cancer’s five use cases will cover the patient journey from cancer prevention over diagnosis to treatment, laying the foundation of data trajectories and workflows for future European Cancer Mission projects.

EOSC4Cancer brings together a consortium of 29 organisations from 13 countries, including cancer research centres, research infrastructures, leading research groups, hospitals, and supercomputing centres. To make the developments sustainable, EOSC4Cancer will leverage the partners’ research infrastructures partners and the EOSC ecosystem
