It often takes years until new procedures for treating cancer can be used in an everyday clinical environment. Beforehand, they go through numerous studies, in which doctors and researchers check the efficacy and safety of the procedure, with the active involvement of the affected patients. Improving the quality of cancer treatments by using new methods is the goal of the Danish-German research project "InnoCan: Innovative High Technology Cancer Treatment Denmark-Germany". Until the end of 2018, the Department of Radiotherapy at Kiel University (CAU) and the University Medical Center Schleswig-Holstein (UKSH) will be involved in the project, which has a total budget of 4.27 million Euros. Funding for the project at the Kiel site is nearly 460,000 Euros. InnoCan is being funded by Interreg Deutschland-Danmark with means from the European Regional Development Fund.
