ENTYAC aims to be the place where pan-European collaborative projects in TYA with cancer take place. We first existed in 2011, lapsed in 2017, and relaunched in 2019. We have been very active this year. During 2022, ESTRO have joined SIOPE, ESMO, EHA, and EONS in our collaboration. We have identified details of 39 AYA-dedicated charities and NGOs in 14 EU nations to join our partners Go-AJA, TYAC/CCLG, Youth Cancer Europe and CCI-E.
We have launched new research projects together:
- Strong – AYA: Led by Professor Van der Graaf from Amsterdam: https://cordis.europa.eu/project/id/101057482
- Joint Action on Network of Expertise (‘JANE’) for TYA: Led by Anna-Lisa Trama Milano: https://ec.europa.eu/info/funding-tenders/opportunities/portal/screen/how-to-participate/org-details/999448037/project/101075328/program/43332642/details
- YCE/CCI CAYAS – led by Youth Cancer Europe and Cancer in Childhood International: https://ccieurope.eu/projects/ and https://www.youthcancereurope.org/past_projects/eu-projects/
We have provided HCP educational content this year to support meetings, such as: An ENTYAC half-day in September 2022 ‘Get up, stand up, for AYA’; An ESMO/Hellenic Society of Medical Oncology AYA educational course in Athens.
In 2023 ENTYAC plan to set our next strategy, to identify other partners in ENTYAC, such as EORTC, ECO, EBMT, a wider range of NGOs and a larger group of national or regional TYA-dedicated societies.
