ONCONET SUDOE is a cooperation network in oncology, co-financed by the INTERREG SUDOE program.  It seeks to connect researchers, care providers, biobanks and companies to set long-term relationships that foster innovation in the oncology sector.



University Toulouse III

Leader of the ONCONET SUDOE project. In ONCONET project, UT3-UPS interacts with the Cancer University Institute of Toulouse (ONCOPOLE), INSERM Toulouse, Toulouse Tech Transfer and the two competitiveness clusters: Pôle Cancer-Bio-Santé and Eurobiomed.


A French competitiveness cluster located in Toulouse. The Cancer-Bio-Santé cluster aims to contribute to the development of innovative products and technologies to improve patient care and the fight against cancer. Also, to support for innovation and value creation in bio-health  by playing the role of catalyst of a local bio-economy centered on the development of the biotech and health sector.


EUROBIOMED leads territorial initiatives, provides resources and offers solutions for businesses and research organisations. EUROBIOMED helps them innovate, finance, develop and achieve their strategic and business objectives to ultimately improve life through innovations in health


Interreg SUDOE Programme supports regional development in Southwest Europe financing transnational projects through the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).  It is a co-financer for this ONCO Emergence Forum.
