April 1, 2013 marked the official start of the CHIC project: “Computational Horizons in Cancer: Developing Meta- and Hyper-Multiscale Models and Repositories for In-Silico Oncology”. CHIC is a large scale, transatlantic research project which is funded under the EU FP7 framework programme.
CHIC proposes the development of a suite of tools, services and secure infrastructure that will support accessibility and reusability of VPH mathematical and computational hypermodels.  Cancer hypermodels to be collaboratively developed by the consortium cancer modellers will provide the framework and the testbed for the development of the CHIC technologies. 
The members of the consortium came together for the first time at the Royal Olympic Hotel in Athens from April 10-12, 2013 to launch the project. Read more....
