EU cancer policy is more important than ever. Ahead of the upcoming European Elections and the mid-term review of Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan scheduled for 2024, it is time to review progress and take a forward-looking approach to ensure that ambitions translate into improved patient outcomes.  

We invite you to join us and our speakers to hear more about the future of cancer care in Europe and the role that EU policy plays have in enabling equal access to high quality pathways across the Union. More details will follow in the coming weeks.  

Register for the fifth annual European Cancer Forum 2023 entitled ‘Patients, Policies, Plans: is Europe on track to beat cancer?’. The event will bring together academic experts, patient representatives, and European and national policymakers to: 

         Explore the next steps in implementing Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan

         Consider thinking differently about cancer

         Examine the role of health literacy and patient empowerment in cancer care
