2015 Corporate Support Opportunities

The Flims Workshop is an educational programme that introduces junior clinical oncologists in any oncology subspecialty to the principles of good clinical trial design.

The presence of a strong research base is essential to the future of good quality cancer care. Since 1999, this annual workshop has been held in the last full week of June in Flims, Switzerland. The participants propose a trial protocol when applying to the Workshop, complete the writing of the protocol throughout the course of the Workshop, and then implement the protocol upon returning home.

This Workshop was established 16 years ago to reverse the decline in the numbers of clinical scientists. The ultimate objective of the Workshop is to develop a robust, expanding base of well-trained clinical researchers by providing them with the training they need to conduct better clinical/translational trial designs.

This well-recognised and CME accredited workshop is a yearly recurring event going into its 17th edition. The Workshop is jointly organised by ECCO (the European CanCer Organisation), AACR (the American Association for Cancer Research), EORTC (the European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer) and ESMO (the European Society for Medical Oncology).

Such an enterprise can only be fully successful if all important stakeholders take part. As such, industry partners are also invited to be part of this project and show involvement in an educational programme that will ultimately contribute to better research and improved public health worldwide. Sponsoring this Workshop will strategically support industry partners’ marketing and corporate social responsibility goals.

Therefore, industry partners are invited to enlist as a sponsor and also contribute by sending young and promising scientists to participate in the development of this Workshop.

This Sponsorship Prospectus outlines the corporate support opportunities available.
