Venue: Gdansk, Poland
The 3rd ETOP Residential Workshop was held 27‑29 August 2014 in Gdansk, Poland. Thirty two young thoracic oncology investigators from 14 countries attended the workshop.
The overall program focused on current trends in research and cancer care and 17 lung cancer experts contributed presentations in their field of expertise in cancer therapy, molecular testing and conduct of clinical trials. As selected hot topics the hosts presented a cross-European comparison of lung cancer care pointing out the connection between the 5-year survival and the economic power of a country and a new cancer intervention plan to improve the situation in Poland. In addition, the participants were asked to bring their own research project. These projects were presented and discussed in 4 different groups, each chaired by one or two senior scientist from the faculties. The many excellent presentations were followed by lively discussions that continued over coffee breaks and dinners.
