The Cancer Drug Development Forum will hold a live webinar on Wednesday 16 March 2022: How can we implement the recommendations of the “Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan”? The perspective of the European Parliament Special Committee on Beating Cancer. The webinar comprises a lecture given by Dr Peter Liese (Member and EPP Coordinator in the Committee on the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety) followed by a discussion session.
On February 2021, the European Commission published the “Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan” to renew the EU commitment to cancer prevention, treatment and care. It is structured around four key action areas (prevention, early detection, diagnosis and treatment, improve quality of life) and it is supported by ten flagship initiatives and multiple supporting actions.
One year after the publication and in light of the recent European Parliament’s vote on the topic, the CDDF invited Dr Peter Liese to share the perspective of the European Parliament Special Committee on Beating Cancer (BECA) on how to implement the recommendations of the Europe Beating Cancer Plan. The lecture will be followed by a panel discussion moderated by Prof Jaap Verweij and Prof. Axel Glasmacher.
