A project started in 2001

In 2001, the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region decided to “set up an ambitious program to fight cancer, bringing together universities, clinics and industrial firms to boost the area’s economic development.” The initiative was part of a national mobilization in 2003 with the “recognition of cancer research clusters at the inter-regional level providing a care-research continuum” (First French Cancer Plan, measure 66).
The Cancéropôle Lyon Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes (CLARA) was launched in this context.
