CONNECT is a landmark public-private initiative, the Norwegian Precision Cancer Medicine Implementation Consortium. The aim is to ensure infrastructure and collaboration on diagnostics, clinical trials, implementation of advanced precision medicine and use of health data, e.g., for health economics analysis. By joining the network of this consortium and leveraging advanced real-world data, NEC hopes to reinforce and accelerate its personalized cancer immunotherapy activities.
