The Cancer Drug Development Forum – CDDF is the platform for all stakeholders involved in the development of cancer drugs.

ACCELERATE Multi-stakeholder Paediatric Platform

The ACCELERATE platform: ‘Innovation for Children with Cancer’, was a joint initiative created in December 2013 by the Cancer Drug Development Forum (CDDF), the European Consortium for Innovative Therapies for Children with Cancer (ITCC), and the European Society of Paediatric Oncology (SIOPE) within the project of the European Network for Cancer Research (ENCCA).

ACCELERATE’s mission is to accelerate innovation for children and adolescents with cancer.

The ACCELERATE platform provides a transparent forum for patients and parents organisations, academic paediatric oncologists and haematologists, pharmaceutical companies and EU regulatory network representatives. It aims to present, discuss, and find solutions in order to address overarching issues with the goal of improving outcomes for children and adolescents with cancer through the development and delivery of innovative anticancer medicine.
