The seven Cancéropôles are part of the French cancer research landscape, enabling at regional and inter-regional levels a better coordination of skills and resources, while breaking down barriers between sectors and disciplines. They give rise to large-scale multidisciplinary research networks gathering scientific, clinical, industrial communities, as well as dedicated stakeholders.
They bring together research teams from research institutions, university hospitals, cancer centers, pharmaceutical and biotech companies and are supported by French Cancer Institute (INCa) and many local governments.
