European Cancer Summit 2021

From Plans to Action

We are looking forward to this year’s European Cancer Summit focused on the most important topics in cancer for a wide-ranging discussion. We are bringing together leading oncology experts, patient advocates, politicians and policy-makers to discuss the main issues impacting cancer policy, for the benefit of cancer patients, healthcare professionals and all people across Europe.  

We hope it will be possible to host this year's Summit both in Brussels and available to join virtually as a hybrid event. Regardless of the circumstances, we invite everyone interested in attending the European Cancer Summit 2021 to register here.  Please note that this year we will be maintaining the registration fees at the Virtual rates, including for delegates who choose to attend the Summit in person.

Every year, at the European Cancer Summit, the European Cancer Organisation brings together leading oncology experts, experienced patient advocates, key opinion leaders, policy makers and politicians to discuss key issues in reducing the burden of cancer, saving, and improving the lives of patients and the public.  

This year’s European Cancer Summit on 17-18 November will focus on the implementation of Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan and the EU Cancer Mission’s recommendations, including through our nine Focused Topic Networks

We are planning this year’s Summit as a hybrid event with some speakers and delegates meeting face-to-face in Brussels in a Covid-safe environment, and others joining virtually, bringing together the European cancer community including our Member Societies and Patient Advocacy groups

The European Cancer Summit is a key event in the cancer policy calendar. Our goal is to showcase the multi-stakeholder, collaborative efforts being made, to ensure tangible results. We believe this exchange will help to improve outcomes for cancer patients and raise awareness of the many significant challenges of cancer. Following the success of the virtual 2020 European Cancer Summit, we have planned this year’s hybrid event. You can view last year’s highlights video and report.
