Multi-stakeholder brainstorming meeting on pancreatic cancer research
The very first “Multi Stakeholder Brainstorming meeting” was organised around the belief that researchers, clinicians, patient representatives, pharma and biotech companies, policy makers, European institutions, in a joint collaboration, have a fundamental role to play in pancreatic cancer research. EUPancreas (COST Action) and Pancreatic Cancer Europe gathered key pancreatic cancer research experts, clinicians, private domain representatives, health policy makers, and patient advocates for the meeting in Brussels.
Following an initiative from our Board Member, Dr. Nuria Malats, the exchanges aimed to propose concrete solutions in favour of research on pancreatic cancer in Europe. Indeed, we think it is time for EU institutions, Members of the European Parliament and national ministries to trigger real change in research, to further improve patient outcomes and survival rates.
