NEW deadline! ENCR Scientific Meeting, virtual, 16-18 Nov 2021


The ENCR Scientific Meeting provides the opportunity for all European cancer registries to share research findings, discuss cancer registration issues, exchange ideas and best practices, network, present epidemiological work based on cancer registry data and finally meet their representatives, the ENCR Steering Committee.
The ENCR Scientific meeting will be organised virtually this time.

The organisation of the ENCR Scientific meeting is co-ordinated by the EC Joint Research Centre, hosting the ENCR Secretariat. Fees are waived by the organisers.
