     International Childhood Cancer Awareness Day (ICCD 2015)

    3rd February 2015, 10:30 – 12:30

    European Parliament, Brussels, Belgium

    Hosted by MEP Glenis Willmott

    Every year SIOPE marks the important date of International Childhood Cancer Day (15th February) by organising an influential event at the European Parliament.

    The event aims to raise awareness on the challenges faced by children and adolescents with cancer and those who take care of them, and to advocate better health and research legislation from European policy-makers in light of the most recent regulatory developments, such as the Data Protection Regulation.

    Hosted by our valued long-standing supporter, Member of the European Parliament Ms. Glenis Willmott, this year’s event will address the topical issues on increasing the cure rate and the quality of cure of children and adolescents with cancer, the main goals of the SIOPE society for the next decade, and how to best ensure that the needs of the paediatric haemato-oncology community are taken into account by European policies and legislation.

    We anticipate a lively and forward-looking discussion on how to improve clinical research and care for children and adolescents in Europe.

    CDDF-SIOPE-ENCCA-ITCC 3rd Paediatric Oncology Conference

    ‘Prioritisation in Paediatric Oncology Drug Development’

    5-6 February 2015, Vienna, Austria

    The CDDF (Cancer Drug Development Forum), previously known as BDA (Biotherapy Development Association), is organising in partnership with SIOPE, ENCCA and ITCC the 2015 edition of the high-level Paediatric Oncology Conference ‘Prioritisation in Paediatric Oncology Drug Development’. This is the third meeting of an ongoing series of biennial conferences aiming at promoting progress in the field of paediatric oncology drug development through input from all concerned stakeholders: regulatory bodies, academia, the pharmaceutical industry, parents and policymakers.

    The CDDF Paediatric Platform was created after the 2013 conference to intensify cooperation between all stakeholders and to make proposals that will address identified bottlenecks. Four working groups have been set up. At the 2015 conference, the working groups will report on their advances and their proposals will be discussed with all participants.

    The main goal of the conference is:

    • To define how to prioritize oncology drugs for their development in children and adolescents in order to increase and speed up access to innovative therapies for all patients
    • To increase the likelihood of developing effective treatments
    • To improve efficiency of development plans
