Project Objective: The lack of efficient communication among cancer scientists, health professionals, patients and policy makers remains a significant barrier to collaboration in the European Union (EU). Information overload and an overwhelmingly fractionated, exhaustive array of resources, networks and knowledge providers are seriously hindering the translation, application and implementation of research across Europe. With the constant explosion of data we can expect to face increasingly challenging times for co-ordinated, reliable and effective scientific dissemination and communication. The proposed project involves representatives from a wide range of scientific and clinical disciplines. They will work to define the barriers, problems and requirements in publishing in a field of science which has exploded in its information content and multiplied its dissemination challenge; to examine post publication information dissemination, understanding and application; to determine priorities for fast and efficient communication within cancer research in Europe, and to integrate the ideas into a common strategic document.
