We are the European Association for Cancer Research (EACR)
The EACR is Europe’s professional membership association for those working and studying in cancer research, with over 10,000 members worldwide. Our mission is “The advancement of cancer research for the public benefit: from basic research to prevention, treatment and care.”
We provide a wide variety of services to our community of members, organise scientific conferences of the highest quality, and facilitate communication and collaboration within the cancer research community. We also set out to raise the profile of cancer research in Europe and to make the case for the need for sustained political and economic support.
The EACR was founded in 1968 by a group of researchers who wanted to enable communication among cancer researchers across the whole of Europe beyond national borders. Today, the EACR promotes communication and collaboration among a thriving membership community of over 10,000 members across 101 countries worldwide.
