Focused Topic Networks

On behalf of its Member Societies and patient advocacy groups, the European Cancer Organisation convenes interested stakeholders around eight important topics and a Special Network on the impact of COVID-19 on Cancer.

Led by co-chairs from our Member Societies, these Networks are being established to facilitate consensus and joint projects in our Strategy 2020-2023.  The programme of the European Cancer Summit is also based on these eight topics.

Focused Topic Networks do not have a decision-making role in policy work.  Where policy needs are identified during Network discussions, our Member Societies are able to make proposals through our policy approval pathway here.  When policies have been agreed, our Focused Topic Networks support the campaign for the implementation of these policies.
