The aim: to reduce the impact of cancer by setting up an innovative, privacy-friendly infrastructure and agreement system for broad data sharing.

The following organisations are participating in the project in a public-private partnership: TNO, IKNL, Radboudumc, UMC Groningen (Palga), AstraZeneca BV, Janssen-Clilag BV, Roche Nederland BV, Almende BV, Linksight BV, Pharmo Institute NV, SURF BV, CZ Zorgverzekeringen NV and Stichting Olijf. There is also coordination with other projects, developments and parties, both national and international.
