Cancer is complex and so is the landscape of cancer research. There is an increasing need for greater structured cooperation and alliances across specialisms. With this in mind, EORTC forges strategic partnerships with professional societies that share our vision for excellence and patient focus, for mutual gain. Expert societies benefit from EORTC’s clinical research expertise and infrastructure, while EORTC can implement complex multidisciplinary research programmes with the quality assurance required.
We have launched successful programmes with professional societies including CAREFOR with ESMO, QUARTET with SIOPE, SURCARE with ESSO, Oligometastasis programme with ESTRO and many others. These partnerships show what is possible by joining forces and skills.
