We are launching our Fieldwork Survey!

EU4CHILD intends to lay the foundations for the development of a multi-purpose ecosystem for a Paediatric Cancer Data inventory, seeking to understand the main challenges behind digitalization and data sharing through the development of a potential set of AI-based services for the detection, diagnosis, prognosis and treatment of several types of childhood cancers. A huge part of this effort is driven by our fieldwork strategy, which includes personal interviews, focus groups and surveys as the main research tools to map out and address our stakeholder's needs.

As a first step in our fieldwork plan, we are glad to present EU4CHILD's Fieldwork Survey! This online survey has been created to assess and refine the requirements already identified in our initial analysis of EU policy, other EU funded projects and related literature on how to approach to creation of an AI-based ecosystem for childhood cancer.

Are you a survivor of pediatric cancer or a caregiver? Do you work in the healthcare sector? Are you an IT expert or a policy maker? Maybe you are just a normal citizen interested in the potential of AI in health?

If your answer to any of these questions is yes, we would be honored if you could participate in this survey and give us your opinion! As always, the process is completely anonymous and it will only take 10 minutes of your time. Thanks for your cooperation!

We need your help! Check out our Questionnaire on Data Protection in Childhood Cancer

We are designing a new framework for research on Artificial Intelligence (AI), active collaboration and knowledge exchange on childhood cancer.

As a first step in this journey, we are researching the requirements and necessities for an online ecosystem that will support medical professionals in the diagnosis and treatment of children with cancer. This ecosystem will be able to provide diagnostic support and treatment recommendations with the help of AI. For patients and their families, the ecosystem is intended to provide better understanding of the disease and treatment.

We would like to get your opinion on this topic and so, we have developed a questionnaire that is available online in 5 languages (English, German, Spanish, French and Italian). It will only take you a few minutes to complete and it will help us immensely: click here to navigate to our questionnaire and let your voice be heard!

EU4CHILD's first official slide deck is out!

Curious about our project? We are proud to present EU4CHILD's first slide deck: a brief presentation on our vision for a EU ecosystem on Childhood Cancer, our tools and services and most importantly, our motivation to connect patients, carers, clinicians and technical experts to provide improved diagnosis, personalised treatment and care through the power of Artificial Intelligence.

Our public community at Zenodo has just launched!

Here at EU4CHILD we all share the vision of the European Open Science Cloud and Open Access research initiatives. Thus, we are committed to making our results easily accessible to other fellow researchers and the wider community, and will provide open access to peer-reviewed publications and scientific data generated within our project.

That’s why we have set up a dedicated community and repository at Zenodo, where we will be uploading publications, public deliverables, data, press releases and much more as the project goes on.

EU4CHILD kicks off its fight against Childhood Cancer

It's official! On May 7th, all EU4CHILD partners gathered virtually to discuss and set the stage for what is to come: our vision for a European ecosystem of Artificial Intelligence services for pediatric cancer that pushes the boundaries on current research and leaves nobody behind.

EU4CHILD is a PPPA-AG (Pilot Project & Preparation Action Grant) to connect key European stakeholders in childhood cancer care by means of eXplainable AI. During this next year and half, we are committed to build an engaged community of patients and families, healthcare professionals, AI experts and policy makers to advance diagnosis, treatment and quality of life in childhood cancer.
