European Parliament, Brussels, Belgium
This will be already the 6th
edition of our yearly event at the European Parliament to mark International Childhood Cancer Day (15 February). Since 2011, SIOPE organises every year an influential meeting to raise awareness on the challenges faced by children and adolescents with cancer in Europe, and those who care for them.
The upcoming edition of this event will take place on Wednesday 27th
January 2016, and registrations are already open
The 2016 meeting will address the need for an enabling legislative and regulatory environment to accelerate the development of paediatric cancer medicines, by presenting the different perspectives of all stakeholders from the paediatric cancers community: academia, EU policy-makers, regulators, industry and – most importantly – patients, survivors and their families.
