Setting up SIRICs is part of measure 1 of the Cancer Plan 2009-2013 aimed at “strengthening the resources of multidisciplinary research”. The SIRICs are intended to provide new operational conditions for cancer research, in view to optimising and accelerating the production of new knowledge and promoting its diffusion and application in the combat against cancer.
A SIRIC is responsible for grouping around a single site medical services and multidisciplinary research teams (covering clinical medicine, biology, technology, epidemiology, human sciences, economics, social sciences and public health). Efficient resources and common services must also participate in carrying out research programs in integrated mode, an organisational mode based on breaking the separation between research and healthcare and on ensuring rapid access to therapeutic innovation.
