Group specific initiative for ECI

ROG Early Career Investigators

What will you gain by joining the ECI of the ROG?

It is the best school to learn about clinical trials, key clinical questions, and a great opportunity to be involved in research related to radiotherapy but also to work side by side with world-leaders in all oncology discisplines in a multidisciplinary approach. Finally working closely with the staff and the methodologists at the EORTC Headquarters is a unique opportunity for learning about biostatistics. Participating in the ECI ROG sessions is a platform to present your research and to be noticed in the European arena. Clinical trials are a life-long commitment and take a long time to complete; it is never too “early” in your carrier to start learning and working with the best researches aiming at giving our patients the best treatment.

What is expected from you as an ECI of the ROG?

An ECI of the ROG is expected to participate in at least one ROG meeting per year and is encouraged to give a short presentation during the ECI ROG session and/or at the plenary session about a topic that was decided prior to the meeting. Possible topics can be research proposals, research done by ECI, new treatment approaches, etc. ECIs are also invited to take part in the discussions held at the different ROG working parties and to take part in the work done with various Disease Oriented Groups (DOGs) within the EORTC.

Please feel free to email Orit Kaidar-Person if you have further questions and/or suggestions regarding the ECI activities within the ROG via email
