European Society for Medical Oncology and European CanCer Organization join forces
Date:4/9/2008

Lugano, Switzerland and Brussels, Belgium, 9 April 2008: The European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) and ECCO - the European CanCer Organisation have united forces to host a co-branded biennial multidisciplinary partnership meeting that will provide the best and most updated scientific data for everyone working in cancer and will also strengthen initiatives aimed at providing all cancer patients with equal access to high-quality cancer care.

The ECCO Congress, which takes place every two years, will become a joint ECCO-ESMO congress, and its scientific committee will be chaired both by ECCO and ESMO. The first congress will be 20-24 September 2009 in Berlin, with subsequent joint congresses being held biennially in the uneven-numbered years.

In the intervening even-numbered years between the ECCO-ESMO congresses, ESMO will continue to hold its own ESMO Congress. In 2008, the 33rd ESMO Congress will take place as planned, 12-16 September, in Stockholm, Sweden.

In addition, ESMOs Board of Directors unanimously voted on 4 April to become a founding member of the new ECCO organisation, composed of European cancer societies, and as a result, ESMO will have a seat on the ECCO Board of Directors. The ECCO Board unanimously accepted the proposal two weeks ago.

ECCO President, Professor Alexander M.M. Eggermont, said he was delighted. ESMO and ECCO have been discussing this for some time now, and we firmly believe that joining forces in this way will benefit all our member organisations, European cancer professionals and, most importantly, cancer patients.

With so much happening in Europe affecting advances in oncology, we need to work together when interacting with European policymakers and industry, so that they take notice, understand and act on our messages. ECCOs mission is to uphold the right of all cancer patients to the best possible treatment and care and to promote interaction between all organisations involved
