World Cancer Day

Discover how COST Actions are contributing to the fight against cancer. 4 February is World Cancer Day. This year’s theme ‘Together it is possible’ reminds us that we all need to take responsibility for reducing the burden of this disease. Only together will we be able to reduce premature deaths from cancer and other Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) by 25 % by 2025. The global campaign is led by the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) with the support of the World Health Organization (WHO). Above all, this day aims to raise awareness about cancer prevention and control on a global scale.

European Privacy and Data Protection Day

The Council of Europe has chosen 28 January as European Privacy and Data Protection Day. This day celebrates privacy and the autonomy of the individual – and gives us the opportunity to engage as citizens in timely debates of today's societies and to reflect on the issue of data protection and privacy. The day is aimed at giving European citizens the chance to understand what their rights are in respect of the collection and processing of their personal data; and also to increase awareness of the risks associated with the illegal mishandling and unfair processing of their personal data.
