LUCIA Workshop - Understanding Lung Cancer



The workshop will set up the scene of LUCIA project's contributions in the next years to advance in risk modelling, prevention and early screening of Lung Cancer. It aims to:

- Provide clinical and technological insights about the risk factors, prevention, early detection and treatment of lung cancer.

- Share LUCIA's unique contributions beyond the state of the art in such fields, in the framework of the EU's Beating Cancer Plan and the Cancer mission.

- Promote a multidisciplinary community for researchers, industry, policy-makers and practitioners to exchange challenges and solutions to improve the understanding of lung cancer and deliver most effective prevention and screening programmes.

"LUCIA Understanding Lung Cancer related risk factors and their Impact" project will run for 4 years under the coordination of TECHNION and the participation of Vicomtech as a Big Data and AI expert.
