Abstract: The Joint Re­search Centre (JRC), in its role as a scientific service to the European Commission and 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 European Network of Cancer Registries (ENCR), established in 1989 within the framework of the Europe Against Cancer programme of the European Commission, connects over 160 national and regional European cancer registries. In 2012, the ENCR endorsed the JRC’s role in hosting its secretariat, ensuring its administrative functioning and networking as well as paving the way towards further coordination and harmonisation aimed at accurate assessment and reliable comparisons of cancer burden indicators all over Europe. The JRC's support to the ENCR primarily addresses harmonization of registration expertise and processes, which will enable the publication and accurate comparison of the collected data at European level.
