Today, our precise mandate is to spread an authentic scientific culture to transfer research results outside the academic context, to promote the social and cultural growth of the countries”.

European Cancer Prevention (ECP) is committed to reducing cancer-related mortality in Italy and Europe by intervening on various fronts. Our organization firmly promotes the abolition of tobacco, the implementation of educational campaigns focused on proper nutrition and a healthy lifestyle, the increase in cancer screening, the use of genetics and precision oncology to identify high-risk individuals and the promotion of tertiary prevention to reduce the risk of relapse. Implementation of such strategies could lead to a 35% reduction in cancer mortality and a 70% increase in cancer survival by 2070.
Cancer prevention encompasses a broad range of activities, commonly referred to as “interventions,” that aim to reduce health risks or threats. ECP is actively engaged in several areas, including epidemiology, nutrition, genetics, molecular biology, targeted therapies, surgery and innovative research areas. Our members come from different European countries and meet annually to share advances in cancer prevention and discuss new research projects.
