Introduction

The European Academy of Cancer Sciences is an independent advisory body of eminent oncologists and cancer researchers, placing science at the core of policies to sustainably reduce the death and suffering caused by cancer in Europe.

The European Academy of Cancer Sciences strives for excellence, independence, leadership, diversity and flexibility.

In practical terms, the Academy is a ‘virtual’ body that groups together and enables continued exchange between representatives with outstanding scientific and academic backgrounds from all cancer disciplines.

Throughout its work, the Academy strives  to contribute independent, authoritative and evidence-based advice to underpin policy for the prevention, the management and the palliation of cancer in Europe.

The Academy currently counts 199 eminent Fellows from across Europe and elections take place annually. To view the full list of the Academy Fellows, please refer to the Directory.

The Academy welcomes requests for information and advice from a broad variety of stakeholders including patient organisations,  healthcare professionals, as well as policy-makers.
