EU Beating Cancer Plan Event

“We are very much looking forward to welcoming our colleagues and friends from all over Europe to Stockholm the 31st of January. We will discuss how to most effectively join forces to ensure an effective and equitable implementation of the Beating Cancer Plan and the Cancer Mission all over Europe and beyond to reduce the burden of cancer on our societies”

Cancer remains a major scourge on European Society. In 2020, 2.7 million people in the European Union were diagnosed with the condition, and 1.3 million people lost their lives to it.

In February 2021, the European Commission launched Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan. Together with the EU Mission Cancer, it represents a concerted effort across Europe to reduce cancer incidence and mortality and improve the quality of life of its citizens. Since its launch, several milestones have been achieved, most recently the adoption of revised EU Council recommendations on cancer screening. Even considering that health is a competence of Member States, the European cancer plan presents the opportunity to work in a coordinated and synergetic way to tackle the burden of the condition, by offering a framework to support Member

States in their own national cancer control plan implementation. It can also help create sufficient critical mass across the EU to create synergies, enable the sharing of best practices and foster greater equity of access to high quality prevention and care across the EU.

The Plenary session and Break-out session 2 will be streaming live between 13:00 – 17:30!

Sweden Innovation Days January 17–20

If we are going to reach the UN’s Global Goals and Agenda 2030, we need to innovate in the broadest sense. Whether you are a startup, intermediary or corporate, working in the public sector, civil society, academia or a government agency, there is something at this event for everyone. We all need to be part of the innovation journey.

The societal challenge of cancer demands new ways of working – at Vision Zero Cancer we work mission-driven towards the vision that no people should die as a result of cancer and more people should live longer and better with finance from the Swedish Innovation Agency (Vinnova) and together with actors along the entire trajectory and ecosystem. 

Sweden Innovation Days take place on the 17th – 20th of January. Day 2 of the conference will take a deep dive into how innovation and collaboration are needed to achieve several of the Global Goals and the theme around: ‘Preventative health and well-being’.

Head of Vision Zero Cancer Ebba Hallersjö Hult together with Magnus R. Björsne (PhD, MBA, Assoc. Prof. Executive Director atAstraZeneca BioVentureHub) speak on “The magic of collaboration – Joining forces for the future to reach UN SDG 3”.

In parallel to this and Sweden at Expo 2020 in Dubai, the Swedish Innovation Agency is arranging an international seminar on the 18th of January where Dan Hill (Director of Strategic Design at the Swedish Innovation Agency) will speak about the agency’s mission driven work and launch the new publication “Mission-oriented innovation in Sweden – a practice guide by Vinnova”.

This is Vision Zero Cancer

Vision Zero Cancer challenges the prevailing ecosystem and connects new ones. We are going to turn cancer from a deadly into a curable or chronic disease.
