WHAT IS CONNECT?
CONNECT is a public-private consortium driving the implementation of precision cancer medicine by jointly addressing key obstacles and piloting novel solutions to transform the current practice.
The consortium has been initiated by 22 founding partners in December 2020, attracted 6 additional partners since then and is coordinated by Oslo Cancer Cluster. CONNECT gathers all Norwegian university hospitals, pharmaceutical and technology companies, the Norwegian Cancer Society as patient organisation, the Norwegian Institute of Public Health, the Norwegian Directorate of Health as well as the Norwegian Medicines Agency. The consortium is open to include new partners from the industry and public sector.
