The CraNE Joint Action aims at facilitating the establishment of a European network of national comprehensive cancer centres. It holds preparatory activities on the creation of National Comprehensive Cancer Centres and EU Networking.

Project description

The CraNE Joint Action is proposed for funding in response to the flagship number 5 of the Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan, which defines that the European Commission will establish by 2025, an EU Network linking recognised National Comprehensive Cancer Centres (CCCs) in every Member State.

The aim of CraNE is to build upon the outcomes of previous CanCon and iPAAC Joint Actions, preparing the necessary preconditions, either administrative or professional and especially those related to high-quality performance and access for the patient. The process will facilitate the integration of both the existing CCCs as well as the newly characterized as CCCs across all EU Member States. The assessment of feasibility of such an EU Network of CCCs, taking into account the various Member States Health systems, will be performed in order to ensure the sustainability of the scheme.
