|European CanCer Organisation|
The European CanCer Organisation (ECCO) represents the interests of over 60 000 oncology professionals. Through its 24 Member Societies, ECCO is the only multidisciplinary organisation that connects and responds to all stakeholders in oncology Europe-wide. As a not-for-profit federation, ECCO exists to uphold the right of all European cancer patients to the best possible treatment and care, promoting interaction between all organisations involved in cancer at European level. It does this by creating awareness of patients’ needs and wishes, encouraging progressive thinking in cancer policy, training and education and promoting European cancer research, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and care through the organisation of international multidisciplinary meetings. ECCO also proactively engages with policymakers to bridge the gap between science and policy, and maximise the potential for achieving real change through consensus.
