The European Cancer Patient is now part of 15 projects funded by the European Union. These projects are part of the EU’s Third Health Programme (2014-2020) and several EU Research and Innovation framework programmes such as the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7), and the Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI) 1 and IMI 2 under Horizon 2020 (H2020). As one of the few cancer patient organisations actively involved in EU-funded projects, the ECPC will continue to apply for funding and submit proposals.
