The French National Institute of Cancer has introduced a competitive site endorsement policy. This policy aims to provide new operational conditions for translational research in oncology that will optimize and accelerate the production of new knowledge and promote its dissemination and application in the treatment of cancers.

As such, the creation of integrated cancer research sites (SIRICs) should lead to significant changes in the conduction of multidisciplinary and integrated research
