Launch of second European Cancer Research Funding survey
Date:9/18/2007

ompanies spend some 3,095 million, or 22% of the estimated annual global spend on cancer research. Traditionally Europe has been considered weak in attracting industry R&D funding, however when one considers the geographical origin of pharmaceutical publications, Europe is very much an equal partner with the USA in cancer research. Indeed Europe attracts some 45.9% of (all disease) pharmaceutical R&D expenditure, he said.

The survey:

  • identified 155 non-commercial (public) funding organisations in Europe spending 1,971 million on the direct funding [2] of cancer research compared to 5,158 million by the USA. In Europe this represents a 38% increase since the last survey whereas funding in the USA has remained relatively static;
  • revealed the average spend per capita across Europe was 3.42, a 34% increase since the 2005 survey and that USA per capita spend was 17.61, five times greater than Europe yet in 2005 this gap was seven times greater;
  • found Europe has, in addition 1,364 million flowing through national healthcare systems and universities to support cancer research compared to 109 million in the USA;
  • shows Europe and the USA are evenly matched for cancer research outputs (volume of cancer research publications) with 52% and 48% of the output, and 1.3 versus 1.4 papers per billion euro GDP;
  • estimated that global public sector cancer research funding (including indirect sources [3]) was 14,030 million.
  • found public cancer research spend in Europe is evenly balanced between charitable and government organisations with 47% and 53% of spend, respectively. In comparison, USA government organisations are the dominant source of cancer research funding with 96% of all funds coming from ten federal funders;
  • found the majority of European spend (80%) from charitable organisations is concentrated in just 14 organisations compared to 29 government fu
