Horizon Europe, the future Framework Program for Research and Innovation in Europe, includes five missions regarding focus topics, among them climate change, plastic free oceans, and cancer. This mission-oriented approach is supposed to make it easier for citizens to understand the value of the investment in joint research and innovation and to maximise its impact throughout Europe.
TUM representatives in the EuroTech Cancer Research Think Tank are Wolfgang Weber, Professor and Director of the Clinic for Nuclear Medicine at the university hospital Rechts der Isar and Juliane Winkelmann, Senior Vice President and chairholder in Neurogenetics.
The main goal of the workshop in Brussels was to come up with a set of concrete recommendations for such a mission on cancer. The workshop was a success: On the basis of the experts' inputs, ten recommendations were developed and subsequently presented to the audience.
Please find the recommendations as well as further information about the future R&I mission on the EuroTech website
