EACR 2020 Congress postponed to 09-12 June 2021, Torino, Italy

26 March 2020

After carefully evaluating the development of the COVID-19 pandemic we made the decision to postpone the EACR 2020 Congress, originally scheduled for 17-20 June 2020 in Torino, Italy.

We’d like to thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate this unique and challenging situation together as a cancer research community.

The Congress will now take place on the new dates of 09-12 June 2021 at the same venue in Torino, Italy. We will update the programme to reflect new research and developments in the field and we look forward to our community gathering together again in June 2021 for exciting science and networking.
