Welcome to the European Association for Cancer Research
Europe’s membership association for cancer researchers

Affiliated National Societies

14 National Societies have chosen to affiliate to the EACR and give their members EACR membership at no extra cost to each member. 

Over 6000 cancer researchers are members of the EACR via their National Society membership in Belgium, Croatia, Denmark, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Portugal, Serbia, Spain, Turkey and the U.K.

Why do National Societies affiliate to the EACR?

  • Benefits for your members: Affiliated National Societies find it helpful to offer EACR membership as part of their own benefits package. This includes all the full benefits of EACR membership.
  • Communications: They can also use our communications channels to reach a wider audience than their own members, and we can develop partnerships for running focussed scientific meetings and courses together.
  • Meeting sponsorship: Affiliated National Societies can apply for meeting sponsorship from the EACR. We accept applications all year round but you must submit the application at least 4 months before the start of the meeting. An application form is available here. Contact Andrew Binns for more information.
  • Committee representation: Presidents of National Societies have an ex-officio seat on the EACR's National Societies Committee

How can a National Society affiliate to the EACR?

Both established societies and societies in the process of being created can affiliate. The EACR will actively support members seeking to form a new National Society.
