SOLACE: Strengthening the screening Of Lung cAnCer in Europe

SOLACE vision and general objectives

The SOLACE vision is to ensure the implementation and optimization of effective, advanced state-of-the-art lung cancer screening programs in EU member states. As there is no “one size fits all” solution, SOLACE will provide a modular framework (toolbox) for individualised approaches for lung cancer screening on a national or regional level. This will empower programmes to increase participation of at-risk populations, improve life expectancy and quality of life even further, increase benefits and reduce harms while being high-quality and highly cost-efficient. The focus of our mission is to develop, test and disseminate tools to help overcome identified bottlenecks and specifically address the health inequalities in different European countries.

Funding

This research project is funded by the EU4Health program of the European Commission. The project is coordinated by EIBIR.
