About Public Affairs
ECCO is uniquely positioned to provide the voice of consensus of European oncology professionals and engage with policy-makers to ensure that cancer stays at the top of the EU agenda.
Providing a rallying point for Europe’s community of oncology professionals, ECCO’s Public Affairs arm engages in oncopolicy: planned and sustained interaction with EU policy-makers as well as third-party stakeholders to anticipate and proactively shape EU cancer health and research policy.
Our policy objectives:
- Speak with a single voice on wider policy issues
- Engage other stakeholders in cancer research, innovation, treatment, care and education
- Coordinate the unified and multidisciplinary oncology community
- Be proactive in Europe
ECCO’s Public Affairs activities aimed at policy and advocacy will create sustained value and representation for all ECCO’s Member Organisations and uphold ECCO’s philosophy that every cancer patient deserves the best.
