Based on discussions with the headquarters and group leaders, new ideas have been implemented and activities initiated with a common endeavor to support Young-ECIs and further develop the Programme.
These have also been the main objectives I committed to in my new position of a Young-ECI representative.
Focusing primarily on clinical and translational studies, our mission is to pursue research in its broadest context. Young-ECIs can develop their own ideas for prospective and retrospective projects and participate in EORTC trials as sub-investigators, local principal investigators at their institutions, and even the main international study co-coordinators (ECIs only). In addition, there are group-specific activities supporting creativity (surveys, reviews, meta-analyses, consensus statements, research grants) and communication (meetings and sessions, webinars, newsletters, social media posting, and collaboration with other disease-oriented groups and task forces).
If you are in specialty training or within 10 years after its completion and are interested in our activities, please fill in this survey to update your membership. You can share this link with your colleagues who are not EORTC members yet but might be interested in joining us as well.
We are looking forward to hearing back from you!
