Vision Zero Cancer is a Swedish research- and innovation milieu that engages actors across society in strategic actions to work jointly in the mission of beating cancer. The founders are the Confederation of Regional Cancer Centres at the Swedish Association of Local Authorities and Regions, Stockholm School of Economics, AstraZeneca and Elekta. It is managed as a partnership, led by an office at House of Innovation, Stockholm School of Economics.


AstraZeneca is a global, science-led biopharmaceutical business and their innovative medicines are used by millions of patients worldwide. Driven by innovative science and an entrepreneurial culture, they are focused on the delivery of life-changing medicines that are fuelling growth and contributing value to patients and society.


Through precision radiation medicine, Elekta is helping clinicians focus where it matters, empowering them to protect the moments that matter for their patients. They are committed to ensuring everyone with cancer in the world has access to – and benefits from – more precise, personalized radiotherapy treatments. 

Confederation of Regional Cancer Centres

Regional Cancer Centres (RCC) work together at national level to create a more equal cancer care in the whole country together with the six healthcare regions – North, Stockholm Gotland, South, Southeast, Mid-Sweden and West.


Roche is a global pioneer in healthcare and was one of the first companies to bring targeted treatment to patients. Their purpose is to do now what the patient needs next. The combined strength of medicines and diagnostics under one roof has given Roche a leading role in precision medicine.

Stockholm School of Economics

The Stockholm School of Economics is an academic hub for ambitious students and researchers from all over the world. By working closely with corporate partners and society at large, SSE has been creating opportunities for its graduates for over 100 years. They conduct research and education in economics, finance, business administration and related disciplines.

Swedish association of Local Authorities and Regions

The Swedish Association of Local Authorities and Regions (SALAR) is an employers’ organisation and an organisation that represents and advocates local government in Sweden. All of Sweden’s municipalities and regions are members of SALAR.
