Joint sessions with the EORTC Radiation Oncology Group (ROG) during the EGAM meetings are currently standard. A fruitful discussion with the members of the ROG resulted in the previously mentioned common proposals with this group. In addition, a number of meetings have taken place between representatives of both groups which resulted in new plans for future collaborations. Formal collaboration also exists with the GETTEC (Grouped’Etude des Tumeurs de la Tête et du Cou), and representation at each other’s meetings has been arranged.
As previously mentioned, the HNCG is working towards improving collaborations with other EORTC groups, especially the Imaging and Pathobiology groups. Collaborations are also foreseen with the Cancer in the Elderly Task Force as well as the Infectious Diseases Group.
