The two day SPAEN Conference 2019 will focus on research and treatment, advocacy and capacity building.
The SPAEN conferences have become a great opportunity to learn, share and grow - for patient advocates and experts. During the last years, it became clear that there is a common sense between patient advocates, sarcoma experts and the industry: By working together, research in sarcomas can be conducted more quickly and new treatments can be introduced faster. Irrespective of the their role, all stakeholders are highly committed to playing their part in “Changing the World” and doing all that they can to achieve our common belief and objective: Together We Can Make A Difference for Those Affected By Sarcomas!
Since 2010 SPAEN is holding an annual conference bringing together sarcoma groups, experts, pharma and research from all over Europe and around the globe. In the last years a growing number of participants demonstrated the increasing interest in the sarcoma field, a rare cancer. In 2018 SPAEN and European Society of Medical Oncology(ESMO) had agreed to combine their meetings and SPAEN held its Annual Conference just before the ESMO GIST & Sarcoma Symposium. Approx. 70 participants from over 25 countries including patient advocates, leading European sarcoma experts and representatives of the healthcare industry joined the two-day meeting.
