Previous Steering Committees


The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service. Functioning as a Directorate-General of the Commission, the Centre supports a wide range of EU policies by providing evidence and technical know-how independent of all private or national interests.

The JRC Directorate F – Health, Consumer and Reference Materials, in close collaboration with the Directorate-General for Health and Food Safety (DG SANTE), is supporting the creation of a cancer information system to assess and monitor the burden of cancer in Europe.

The JRC has been hosting the ENCR secretariat since 2012, ensuring continued administrative functioning of the network. With the goal of enabling accurate comparisons of European cancer information data, the JRC supports the ENCR in the harmonisation of data and registration processes.
