The EORTC celebrated its 60th Anniversary on September 30th 2022 bringing together our members, partners, patient advocates and other key stakeholders in cancer research.
Beyond celebrating EORTC’s past through revisiting this organisation’s remarkable achievements, this important event also looked to the future, as EORTC adapts to a changing landscape. Key experts gave insights on how clinical cancer research has evolved, and what the future should look like for the EORTC. There were discussions with policymakers on how clinical research can help shape European policies and how EU institutions can facilitate a comprehensive European agenda for clinical cancer research.
As more people are affected by cancer, there is a critical need for better understanding this multifaceted disease – through research and, importantly, through collaboration. Collaboration is part of EORTC’s DNA: we join forces with global partners across disciplines and across tumour types, to overcome global cancer challenges. This celebration was an opportunity to welcome clinical research groups from across the world to foster better alliances, reducing inefficiencies and striving for the best care for cancer patients, to ultimately improve their survival and quality of life.
We thank all of you for joining us to celebrate the 60th Anniversary of this truly unique organisation.
