European Cancer Observatory (ECO) is a project developed at the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) in partnership with the European Network of Cancer Registries (ENCR) in the framework of the EUROCOURSE project supported by the European Commission. The ECO platform provides a comprehensive system of information on cancer burden in Europe across three web sites: EUCAN national estimates, EUREG registry data and EUROCIM downloadable data.

    national estimates

    EUCAN presents national estimates of cancer incidence, mortality and prevalence for 24 major cancer types in 40 European countries for 2012. The standard methodology used may have produced results different from those developed by national bodies.

    registry data

    EUREG permits the exploration of geographical patterns and temporal trends of incidence, mortality and survival observed in European population-based cancer registries for 35 major cancer entities in about 100 registration areas.

    downloadable data

    EUROCIM allows the user to define, extract and request data sets provided by the participating cancer registries.
