On the occasion of the French Presidency of the Council of the European Union, the first European Conference of the French National Cancer Institute will be held on 3 and 4 February 2022.
One year after the launch of France’s ten-year cancer-control strategy and the European Beating Cancer Plan, and on the occasion of World Cancer Day, this Conference seeks to step up cooperation and enhance synergy to help Europe advance in this fight, for the benefit of citizens from the 27 Member States.
This event held in the context of the French EU Presidency will be attended by French President Emmanuel Macron (participation possible), the President of the European Commission, Ministers for Health from France, Sweden and the Czech Republic, and the French Minister for Research, subject to their respective availability.
This forum for discussion and co-construction of solutions for fighting cancer will allow key European institutional stakeholders and experts to share their views and make proposals regarding the five key themes on fighting cancer:
- Childhood cancers;
- Cancers with poor prognosis;
- Cancer prevention;
- Cancer and Employment;
- International cooperation in the fight against cancer.
