Prof Claudio Lombardo – Organisation of European Cancer Institutes

Prof Claudio Lombardo talks to ecancer at the European Forum on Oncology in Berlin, May 2012, about the concept of the ‘living lab’ and the open European research area. 

 

These ideas, which have been present in areas such as the US, aim to pool funding and resources in order to advance research.

 

Prof Lombardo stresses the need for more people to be informed on the possibilities of open research funding and research platforms such as the EurocanPlatform and Transcan, which would lead to the improvement of conducting translational research.
