Governance

EU Commission - DG SANTE

The European Commission Directorate-General Health and Food Safety (DG SANTE) has the policy leadership on the EU health related policies aiming to protect and improve public health. 

DG SANTE takes forward several initiatives on cancer, among those, ECIBC. 

ECIBC is carried on with a focus on scientific evidence and long term sustainability, building upon a platform bringing together a wide range of actors at EU level in a transparent way.

The Commission expert group on Cancer Control is a forum for Member States and stakeholders to provide input into cancer policy development at EU level. The Group regularly reviews the development of ECBIC in order to guarantee the full compatibility and coordination of the Initiative with the overall EU policy on cancer.

JRC Healthcare Quality Team

JRC coordinates the technical and scientific aspects of the work ensuring synchronisation of all the initiative’s objectives. JRC also provides the outsourced supports, the collaborating tools and logistics for the ECIBC working groups and other involved stakeholders. JRC also ensures appropriate communication with other EC services or working/expert groups in areas relevant for the project.
