2.    Project ID: 724161 - JARC
Project title: Third EU Health Programme Joint Action on Rare Cancers
Project period: 01. 10 2016 – 30. 09. 2019
Total Project budget: 2.499.746,7 EUR
Subsidy: 1.499.848,04 EUR

Lead Partner: Fondazione IRCCS Istituto Nazionale Tumori (INT), Milano, Italy
Project Partners: 33 European organization
Subsidy: to University of Szeged 8.281,80 EUR
Aid intensity: 60%

Aim of the project: JARC should be viewed as the natural framework to bring together at the EU level all Member States (MS) and stakeholders (disease-based communities of physicians, researchers and patients, scientific and professional societies, patient advocacy groups and organisations), to provide political recommendations to the EU and to MS to:
1.    prioritise rare cancers in the agenda of the EU and Member States (ensuring rare cancers will be included in national cancer control plans);
2.    develop innovative and shared solutions, to be recommended for implementation, mainly through the future ERNs on rare cancers.
Therefore, the final goal of JARC will be to contribute to improve health outcomes for patients with rare cancers and to decrease health inequalities across Europe closely working with the Commission and the MS. Maximizing chances of future ERNs on rare cancers to be successful is viewed as a key factor for this to happen in Europe.

Aid intensity: 100%

Project Partners: University of Novi Sad, Faculty of Sciences (Lead Partner, Sebia), Institute of Oncology Vojvodina, Sebia, University of Szeged

Aim of the project: The main goal is to improve the knowledge and preparedness of medical physicists according to the special needs that they face with during their everyday activity or if a particular new radiotherapy technique is to be implemented. Curriculum will be developed to cover both a structured basic learning, and also the issues related to specific techniques such as conformal radiotherapy, intensity-modulated radiotherapy and stereotactic radiosurgery. Educational material and standardized QA/QC program will be developed in cooperation between the 2 centers. Furthermore, the project aims at broadening training and education to the whole Serbian and Hungarian community of medical physicists. Workshops and a professional website will support the rapid acceptance and implementation of the modern knowledge. The final increment of the project will fulfil high quality and safe radiotherapy and better treatment of cancer patients.
