ECHoS Project

ECHoS is an European project, funded by Horizon Europe Programme, that aims to support the implementation of the Cancer Mission activities in all Member State and Associated Country (MS/AC) through the establishment and development of National Cancer Mission Hubs (NCMHs) operating at national, regional, and local levels. By establishing NCMHs in each MS/AC, European citizens and organisations in health, research, and beyond, will be voiced and their voices will echo together.

Our ambition is to further support the Cancer Mission by providing MS/AC with the capacity to gradually create NCMHs, operating at national, regional, and local levels, that will have a key role involving all relevant stakeholders, in cancer-related policy dialogues.
