ExPO-r-Net has kicked off!

ExPO-r-NeT_NewThe European Expert Paediatric Oncology Reference Network for diagnostics and treatment, ExPO-r-Net, just started its activities! This new EU-funded project involves a consortium of 18 main partners (and more than 50 collaborating partners)  and has been created to ensure that the SIOPE-led ‘Standards of Care for Children with Cancer’ are uniformly applied all over Europe. The overall aim of the project is to reduce the current inequalities in survival by improving the quality of healthcare provided across Europe, and particularly addressing countries with lower healthcare capabilities (Eastern European/low-income). Last 21st March 2014  a very successful kick-off meeting took place in Luxembourg: you can have a look at some pictures from the event here, and more information on the project will be updated soon on the same page.
