Clinical Research Council for paediatric and adolescent oncology

By bringing together existing paediatric oncology clinical trial groups and national paediatric haemato-oncology societies, the SIOPE Clinical Research Council for paediatric and adolescent oncology (SIOPE CRC) represents the paediatric oncology clinical research community across Europe.

Established to facilitate good research practice exchange amongst international co-operative groups, this executive decision-making body expresses the unified voice by dealing with common burning issues in the field and by representing the point of view of National Paediatric Haemato-Oncology Societies (NaPHOS) and European Clinical Trial Groups (ECTGs) at the highest European political level.

Formerly known as “ECRC”, the SIOPE CRC was originally founded in 2011 within the ENCCA project with the aim to establish a ‘European Virtual Institute’ for clinical and translational research in childhood and adolescent cancers.
