Corporate Support Prospectus


The Methods in Clinical Cancer Research Workshop is an educational programme that
introduces junior 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. 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 17 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 essential
training to conduct better clinical and translational trial designs.

This well-recognised and CME accredited workshop is a yearly recurring event going
into its 18th 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.

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

This Prospectus outlines the corporate support opportunities available.
