National Centre for Neuroendocrine Tumours at Oslo University Hospital has been nominated "Centre of Excellence" by the European Neuroendocrine Tumor Society (ENETS).

In 2010, ENETS received nearly two dozen applications from institutes across Europe, seeking Center certification. National Centre for Neuroendocrine Tumours were among the ten finally selected.

This network of centers allows NET patients to seek specialists who can best treat them, and serve to unify the care and research being conducted in the NET field across Europe.

In 2007, the ENETS Executive Committee agreed to form a task force to investigate the feasibility of establishing Centers of Excellence. A network of centers would allow NET patients to seek specialists who could best treat them, and would also unify the care and research being conducted in the NET field across Europe.

In 2010, ENETS received nearly two dozen applications from institutes across Europe, seeking Center certification. Twelve were selected to begin the rigorous certification process. Among the ten that then were selected is the National Centre for Neuroendocrine Tumours at Oslo University Hospital.
