About OECI

What is OECI

The OECI is a non-governmental Organisation founded in Vienna in 1979 and remodelled in 2005 into OECI-EEIG, an European Economic Interest Grouping.
 
OECI presently comprises 123 Members, which include some of the most prominent European Comprehensive Cancer Centres.
 
Several major cancer centres from the Chile, Colombia, Jordan, Russian Federation, Tanzania, Turkey, Ukraine and Viet Nam are also members of OECI.
 
The OECI aim is to accelerate the application of multidisciplinary personalised care approaches to reduce mortality and to guarantee an equitable access to care to all cancer patients and supporting parallel initiatives outside the EU and in other continents.
 
This goal is being achieved by promoting and enhancing the concept of “comprehensiveness” and “multi-disciplinarity”, supporting quality in cancer care and dynamically working in crosscutting expertise by involving our Working Groups, our Members and promoting synergies with other cancer Organisations.
 
The OECI is currently geared towards improving quality and internal organisation of our Members, supporting basic, translational & clinical research, collaborating for good practices with patients, improving molecular pathobiology approaches, performing studies on cancer economics and on real world data to produce evidences.
 
The above goals are also realised thanks to the OECI participation to some EC activities related to the European Cancer Mission and the Europe’s Beating cancer Plan.
