Hosted under the auspices of ECCO (European CanCer Organisation), the Academy strives for excellence, independence, leadership, diversity and flexibility.
The Academy is a virtual body, grouping together representatives with outstanding scientific and academic backgrounds from all cancer disciplines to provide knowledgeable and unbiased advice on matters of policy and priorities at the national, European and global level.
The European Academy of Cancer Sciences was launched in September 2009 at the ECCO 15-34th ESMO Multidisciplinary Congress in Berlin, beginning with a Founding Group composed of 114 highly-distinguished oncology clinicians and scientists based in 19 European countries spanning the entire oncology spectrum. In 2010 a further 25 Fellows were voted in, and after this years election, consisting of nominations and an online voting system, the Academy now boasts 164 top oncology experts.
