Despite the extensive coverage in the British media on research into the study of genomes and the risks of developing cancer – funded by Cancer Research UK and the Wellcome Trust – the absence of any reference to EU funding was striking, despite some referring to the pan-European element of the research project.

Only the Japan Times reported the research was also funded by the EU and the US National Institutes of Health with Channel 4 News acknowledging it was part of the Collaborative Oncological Gene-Environment Study (COGS).

The COGS study is a project financed under the 7th Framework Programme, attracting approximately €11.7 million of EU funding towards the total project cost of around €16.6m.
