The Steering Committee in DCCC is responsible for the running of the centre and consists of representatives from the corporate management level in the Danish regions, the university hospitals, the universities and the Director General of the Danish Health Authority. The representatives have been appointed to the Steering Committee of DCCC because of their high professional knowledge and overview within the field of cancer. The Committee is responsible for managing DCCC, as well as accept and initiate initiatives supporting DCCC's objectives. Members of the Steering Committee are appointed for a four-year period.
