Introduction

The first European acceleration program for innovators in oncology

The financial, emotional and physical cost of cancer is immense. In Europe alone, each year roughly 3M people are diagnosed with cancer and over 1M people die from cancer. Each of these patients are going through difficult and burdensome treatments. New technology and digital tools can alleviate some of the challenges patients and their support-network face during their treatment and recovery journey. These tools could also play an important role in preventing cancer altogether, with 40% of cancer diagnoses being preventable
 
The Onco-Tech program is designed to accompany promising and ambitious innovators who want to see their idea and start-up grow. No standardized workshops. Only specific actions, expertise and support tailored to your unique challenges, and opportunities.
