Two Italian Research Institutes are the coordinating centres of EUROCARE: the Istituto Nazionale Tumori di Milano (INT) and the Italian National Institute of Health (Istituto Superiore di Sanità - ISS)
The EUROCARE Scientific Direction (SD) is presently composed of four members, from the research teams of the Istituto Nazionale Tumori di Milano (INT) and of the Istituto Superiore di Sanità (ISS):
The SD has the task of coordinating the whole EUROCARE programme. In this task, the SD is supported by the EUROCARE Steering Committee. The SD is responsible for the study design and project protocols, for data storage, quality control of data, methodological aspects and main data analyses.
DATA ANALYSIS TEAM
The Researchers Committee (RC) includes all researchers of the INT and ISS groups working in the programme. They contribute to EUROCARE articles and monographs in accordance with the advice given by the Steering Committee. The RC shares the responsibility concerning the study’s design and results with the contributing cancer registries.
The EUROCARE survival data base is located at the Istituto Superiore di Sanità in Rome, Italy. The Cancer Epidemiology Unit is in charge of the data bank scientific maintenance and update, and the ISS IT Service is in charge of its technical management.
The High Resolution data base (HR) is located at the Department of Preventive and Predictive Medicine, INT, Milan, Italy.
The EUROCARE Steering Committee (SC) is composed by experts designated from different European regions (Nordic countries, UK and Ireland, Southern, Central and Eastern Europe) and by the INT and ISS researchers. The SC steers the scientific activity and publication policy, gives advice on study proposals and keeps up contacts between the cancer registries and the coordinating centre.
EUROCARE is the largest European collaborative study on cancer survival from population-based cancer registries data. The EUROCARE Working Group (WG) is composed of :
- the European cancer registries contributing to the project
- the staff working at INT and ISS
- the Steering Committee members
- experts in cancer epidemiology from different European Institutions contributing to EUROCARE’s studies
At date, the WG includes representatives of 117 European Cancer registries in 31 countries.
The EUROCARE Technical Secretariat ensures contacts and exchanges between participants.
