Position Statements

Since the creation of our Society, our efforts focused on making the voice of paediatric oncology heard at the European level: our profile to date has been enhanced by our successful participation in different European initiatives and projects, and we have become increasingly recognised for promoting better European Union policies for children with cancer. SIOPE deeply engages at the level of the EU decision-making process, and does so by liaising with the key stakeholders in our field, by organising awareness-raising events as well as by producing communication documents, clearly stating which pieces of legislation are backed by our community, as well as which aspects of the policies and legislation should be improved and how. In the last years, SIOPE managed to raise awareness on the numerous challenges paediatric haemato-oncologists face on a daily basis, making sure that our priorities are correctly represented: this is why today the EU institutions consider SIOPE as a key stakeholder.
