  • 7th Annual World Cancer Series: Europe

    The event will convene more than 2000 policymakers, health-care providers, industry, and patient groups for robust debate and dialogue.

    The faculty of experts will explore not only what can be done to improve cancer control, but why this is urgent.

    What are the real-world examples of improved care for the individual with (or at risk of) cancer? How does improving care and patient health across the region contribute to social and economic development across Europe? What concrete steps can be taken to foster better prevention, better care, human capital, more vibrant knowledge economies, and greater equity across Europe?

    We start the week on Day 1 (8th November) looking at how we can develop a road map for cancer control across Europe. Day 2 (9th November) will examine immunotherapy and CAR-T, and radiotherapy. On Day 3 (10th November) our expert faculty will tackle the growing area of genomics and personalised cancer care, and digital health and telemedicine. Finally, on Day 4 (11th November) we will delve into AI and machine learning in pharmaceutical development and real-world data and data analytics.
