EPIC Governance

Since its inception, the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC) study has been coordinated by the EPIC Steering Committee, composed of the study coordinator (Professor Elio Riboli at Imperial College London), two representatives from IARC-WHO, and two representatives from each participating country. The governance of the project is regulated by a series of Collaborative Research Agreements established between IARC-WHO and all national collaborating institutions. The EPIC Steering Committee meets monthly by teleconference and typically twice a year in person.
