Senior Planning Officer (project coordinator), Finnish Cancer Centre
Would you like to be involved in developing cancer treatments and research across the EU?
The Finnish Cancer Centre (FICAN) and its coordinating unit are looking for a SENIOR PLANNING OFFICER (PROJECT COORDINATOR) for an ongoing EU project (ECHoS – Cancer Mission Hubs) at Helsinki University Hospital (HUS) for a fixed period of two (2) years.
Cancer is rapidly becoming more prevalent, and the problem is particularly pronounced in Finland due to the demographic structure of our society. The cost of cancer treatment is rising even faster. In addition, modern cancer treatments require an increasingly multi-professional approach and more individualised molecular diagnostics: recent improvements in the effectiveness of cancer treatments are thanks to this kind of multidisciplinary cooperation. The Finnish Cancer Centre (FICAN) was established to tackle this challenge in 2019. Its contracting parties comprise all municipal federations in Finnish hospital districts as well as five universities engaged in teaching and research in the fields of medical science. FICAN consists of a coordinating unit and several regional cancer centres.
One of FICAN’s objectives is to actively contribute to EU projects coordinated under the auspices of, for example, the Mission Cancer & Beating Cancer Plan. FICAN has recently got involved with an EU project called ECHoS – Establishing of Cancer Mission Hubs: Networks and Synergies, which was launched earlier in 2023.
The Finnish Cancer Centre (FICAN) and its coordinating unit are looking for a SENIOR PLANNING OFFICER (PROJECT COORDINATOR) for this ongoing EU project (ECHoS – Cancer Mission Hubs) at Helsinki University Hospital (HUS) for a fixed period of two (2) years.
