Oslo Innovation Week: Cancer Research and Innovation – Benefits for Patients

Event Details

During this evening meeting in Oslo Innovation Week, we will discuss the benefits patients get from cancer research and innovation. 


Globally, nearly 1 in 6 deaths is due to cancer. The number of new cases is expected to rise by about 70% over the next 2 decades, according to the World Health Organisation, WHO.

Even though the future looks grim, more people than ever survive cancer due to new innovations within diagnostics and treatment. But we may not rest. We need to do even better.

Join us in the Norwegian Cancer Society´s newly opened Science Centre to hear representatives from the entire value chain within cancer innovation on the possibilities and the hurdles to develop better diagnostics and medicines faster.


We are cohosting this meeting with:
Kreftforeningen, The Norwegian Radium Hospital Research Foundation and Cancer Research UK
