The EORTC is a non-profit international research organisation created under Belgian law in 1962. The EORTC is recognised as scientific research institution and as non-profit clinical trial sponsor by the Belgian State. Since its creation, the EORTC has contributed to improve the survival rates for several types of cancer through translational and clinical research. Over than 30 EORTC clinical trials are open to patient recruitment at any given time. Both multinational and multidisciplinary, the EORTC Network comprises more than 2,000 collaborators from all disciplines involved in cancer treatment and research in more than 300 university hospitals in over 30 countries. EORTC databases contain quality assured data from some 180,000 cancer patients from EORTC clinical trials. Currently, some 50,000 patients are being followed-up after treatment. The scientific activities of EORTC are strictly peer-reviewed and subject to quality assurance/ quality control programs. The EORTC operates on an independent basis, and in this capacity is able to work in partnership with the pharmaceutical industry in evaluating innovative molecules. EORTC has contributed to several success stories in term of new anti-cancer drugs development including registrations by the FDA and the EMA. The EORTC has proven track records in establishing new standards e.g. Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors (RECIST), quality of life of cancer patients, etc. The EORTC is organizing several major annual conferences in collaboration with several prestigious US groups e.g. the AACR, ASCO and the NCI. Since 1991, the EORTC Fellowship Program has allowed more than 100 medical doctors, statisticians and health scientists from all over the world to do research project at the EORTC. The EORTC is offering a wide range of training for clinical research professionals ranging from GCP to clinical research methodology.
