Young SIOPE is a formal group within SIOP Europe to be officially launched during the first SIOPE Annual Meeting in Prague, 20-24 May 2019. It is a forum for young members of the European paediatric oncology community and it was intended to foster a closer community and to facilitate involvement of SIOP Europe’s youngest members in research, development and education. The group’s overarching aims are to facilitate involvement and exchange in clinical, research, and educational activities as well as to become a driving force and platform for new ideas in the field of paediatric oncology. SIOP Europe’s Board and members will benefit from the diversity of backgrounds and out-of-the-box thinking approach of the Young SIOPE members, while the Young SIOPE members in turn will benefit from the support in their development.
