ENCCA (2011 – 2014)
The European Network for Cancer Research in Children and Adolescents (ENCCA) is an FP7network of excellence comprising 33high-level European research institutes and organisations recognised for their excellence in paediatric oncology and dedication to improving the treatment of children and adolescents suffering from cancer. This network aims for the first time to integrate all stakeholders involved in the paediatric oncology field in an effort to facilitate access to therapies and standards of care across Europe, and reduce the existing gaps and limitations in paediatric oncology.
The currently existing informal paediatric and adolescent oncology clinical trial groups will collaborate to create a European Clinical Research Council (ECRC) and link with all professionals in the field as well as parent and patient groups to ultimately create a sustainable “European Virtual Institute” for clinical and translational research in childhood and adolescent cancers.
Along with other partners, ECCO is in charge of communication and dissemination activities as well as educational activities.
As part of the educational activities, online case studies were launched in January 2012. For more information please visit SIOPE/ENCCA case studies.
