What is OECI

The "Organisation of European Cancer Institutes" is a non-governmental, no-profit legal Entity established in 1979 to promote greater cooperation among European Cancer Centres and Institutes.
Its founders designed a structure aimed at promoting efficient partnership across Europe, notwithstanding its linguistic barriers and traditional care and research heterogeneity.
The OECI is a network presently regrouping 93 Members collaborating to reduce fragmentation and to give to all European cancer patients the possibility of receiving the best available care.
To better achieve its goals, and disseminate the innovation process amongst its Members and abroad, the Organisation works in close collaboration with the European Cancer Patients Coalition, the European Association for Cancer Research, the European Society of Pathology.
The EACR-OECI training course series on “Molecular Pathology Approach to Cancer” in Amsterdam, is just an example of the efforts to promote the dissemination of innovation.
The managerial support is mainly organised through the President’s Office and the Central Office in Brussels, alongside the Liaison and Director’s Office.
The Communication and Dissemination of the OECI activities, reports, proceedings is coordinated by the Liaison Office and are also publicised through ecancermedicalscience, the Official OECI e-Journal at ecancer.org.
