What is it about?
The aim of the call is to put together a transdisciplinary team that will work on optimizing patient value in cancer research. The transdisciplinary research team will use a combination of reflection-oriented and action-oriented work.
The reflection-oriented work will focus on the conceptualization of patient value. This requires going beyond specific disciplines.
The action-oriented work will focus on bringing to life this reflection through the facilitation of concrete collaborative projects, together with stakeholders and with the constant participation of patients.
The Fund 'Cancer research for more patient value', managed by the King Baudouin Foundation, aims to fund and facilitate the transdisciplinary team for a period of two years.
Online info sessions will be organised on 6th and 18th October (12.00 till 13.30). Please register via the following links:
- Session on 6th October
