Stemming from the specific risk factors identified with colorectal cancer (CRC), ONCODIR: Evidence-based Participatory Decision Making for Cancer Prevention through implementation research project integrates multidisciplinary research methods from health policy analytics, social and behavioural science, artificial intelligence (AI) – powered multi-omics and retrospective data analytics, as well as decision support theories to deliver evidence-based cancer prevention programmes and innovative AI-powered personalised prevention approaches. The coherent technological ecosystem that ONCODIR is developing is based on robust AI trustworthiness and privacy preserving principles to deploy recommendation services that will be specified by citizens, health policy actors and Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) experts, during three design thinking workshops. SSH research will address aspects such as the life-status, nutritional and social habits in tandem with Economics, Sociology and Local/Regional Cultural Identity and Ethics. ONCODIR’s results will be validated in three Laboratory Integration Tests (LITs) and three Large-scale Intervention Pilots (LIPs) in five EU member states, with the active involvement of medical scientists, health care providers, foundations, and consortium experts.
