Logo and title_overlapping.jpg
The ENCR Scientific Meeting and General Assembly is a bi-annual event bringing together cancer registries in Europe. Participants get to share research findings, discuss cancer registration issues, exchange ideas and best practices, network, present epidemiological work based on cancer registry data and finally meet their representatives, the ENCR Steering Committee.
The 2018 Scientific Meeting was organised under the overarching topic "Data linkage and Cancer Registries".
The organisation of the event was co-chaired by the European Commission Joint Research Centre (JRC) and the Danish Cancer Society, with support from the ENCR Steering Committee.
