ECCO – European CanCer Organisation (


We are a federation of 23 professional member societies working in oncology in Europe and beyond.  Our members represent over 80 000 professionals. 

We aim to address disparities and inequalities in cancer outcomes across Europe by achieving synergies between different members’ expertise and knowledge to ensure that cancer care is optimised for all patients.

Our vision:

To improve outcomes for all cancer patients in Europe through multidisciplinarity.


ECCO is the united voice of European cancer professionals to address common policy issues.

Quality Cancer Care:

ECCO believes that organisational criteria for the delivery of optimal care to each patient is a key step in ensuring high quality cancer care. Due to its multidisciplinary nature, ECCO is uniquely positioned to work in this area.

European Cancer Congress - From Evidence to Practice in Multidisciplinary Cancer Care:

The congress presents the most important developments for a multidisciplinary audience and explores the implementation and interaction of these developments that would ensure the best outcomes for patients. In a context of fast-increasing complexity, the interdisciplinary education programme of the Congress, delivered annually, offers oncology professionals the best tools for continually elevating their daily practice.




American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) (


Founded in 1907, the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) is the world’s first and largest professional organization dedicated to advancing cancer research to prevent and cure all cancers. AACR membership includes 37,000 laboratory, translational, and clinical researchers; population scientists; other health care professionals; and patient advocates residing in 108 countries.

The AACR marshals the full spectrum of expertise of the cancer community to accelerate progress in the prevention, detection, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer by annually convening more than 30 conferences and educational workshops, the largest of which is the AACR Annual Meeting with nearly 19,500 attendees.

In addition, the AACR publishes eight prestigious, peer-reviewed scientific journals and a magazine for cancer survivors, patients, and their caregivers. The AACR funds meritorious research directly as well as in cooperation with numerous cancer organizations.

As the Scientific Partner of Stand Up To Cancer, the AACR provides expert peer review, grants administration, and scientific oversight of team science and individual investigator grants in cancer research that have the potential for near-term patient benefit.

The AACR actively communicates with legislators and other policymakers about the value of cancer research and related biomedical science in saving lives from cancer.


European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer

The European Organisation for the Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) (  

The European Organisation for the Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) brings together European cancer clinical research experts from all disciplines for trans-national collaboration.


Both multinational and multidisciplinary, the EORTC Network comprises more than 4,500 collaborators from all disciplines involved in cancer treatment and research in more than 600 hospitals in over 30 countries.

Through translational and clinical research, the EORTC offers an integrated approach to drug development, drug evaluation programs and medical practices. EORTC Headquarters, a unique pan European clinical research infrastructure, is based in Brussels, Belgium, from where its various activities are coordinated and run.



ESMO, the European Society for Medical Oncology (


ESMO is the leading professional organisation for medical oncology, with the overarching goal of improving outcomes for cancer patients everywhere.

We are the society of reference for oncology education and information, and are committed to supporting our members to develop and advance in a fast-evolving professional environment.
Founded in 1975, ESMO has European roots with a global reach: we welcome oncology professionals from around the world. We are a home for all oncology stakeholders, connecting professionals with diverse expertise and experience, and speaking with one voice for our discipline. Our education and information resources support an integrated multi-professional approach to cancer care, from a medical oncology perspective. We seek to erase boundaries in cancer care, whether between countries or specialities, and pursue our mission across oncology, worldwide.

The ESMO community brings together more than 13,000 oncology professionals from over 130 countries. Drawing on 40 years of experience and around 500 expert committee members, ESMO serves its members and the oncology community through:

  • Post-graduate oncology education and training
  • Career development and leadership training for the next generations of oncologists
  • International congresses and workshops to share expertise and best practice, learn about the most up-to-date scientific advances, and connect with colleagues in related disciplines.
  • Continuously reviewed, evidence-based standards for cancer care in Europe
  • Advocacy and consultation to foster a favourable environment for scientific research
  • Cancer care is rapidly becoming more integrated and more specialised; whether their field is research, diagnosis, treatment, care, or advocacy, oncology professionals need to both build their specialist knowledge and connect with the best practitioners in other disciplines worldwide. ESMO membership makes this possible.
