Global networks

Discussing health care at Cancer Crosslinks 2019

Building strong international networks to stimulate collaboration, partnerships and thereby innovation is a key strategic goal for Oslo Cancer Cluster.

We successfully work in cluster to cluster collaborations to gain critical mass, enhance visibility and create “networks of networks” to support the partnering activities. Together with our members we are building an international network of key opinion leaders in oncology.
