Through its 25 Member Societies – representing over 170 000 professionals – The European CanCer Organisation (ECCO) is the only multidisciplinary organisation that connects and responds to all stakeholders in oncology Europe-wide.
ECCO is a not-for-profit federation that exists to uphold the right of all European cancer patients to the best possible treatment and care, promoting interaction between all organisations involved in cancer at European level.
It does this by creating awareness of patients’ needs and wishes, encouraging progressive thinking in cancer policy, training and education and promoting European cancer research, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and care through the organisation of international multidisciplinary meetings.
ECCO also organises the multidisciplinary annual European Cancer Congress. The congress offers a large platform for discussion, presentation of latest practice-changing data, education and tremendous networking opportunities for all oncologists, scientists, nurses, patient advocates and policymakers.
