NCU has supported e.g. NORDCAN, the Summer School in Cancer Epidemiology, the Association of Nordic Cancer Registries along with many smaller projects.
NCU Board decided 8. May 2019 to support NORDCAN 2019 – 2021.
January 1st 2019, the secretariat of NORDCAN moved from the Danish Cancer Society to the Cancer Registry of Norway. One of the main tasks of the new secretariat the next three years, in addition to facilitating the existing NORDCAN-cooperation, is to lead the project of the upcoming transition, modernization and harmonization of the whole NORDCAN-platform. To secure continuous sharing of data between the Nordic countries, the secretariat and IARC, there is a need to move from a centralized data processing in the secretariat to localized data processing in each Nordic country.
The main tasks of the NORDCAN-group, the IT-group and the secretariat is to make all necessary specifications for both the harmonization and quality assurance of the localized data processing and for a new web platform.
