26th Congress of the European Association for Cancer Research

EACR 2021 Congress: Innovative Cancer Science


EACR 2021 - Innovative Cancer Science: Better Outcomes Through Research

09-12 June 2021 | Torino, Italy

Update 02 September 2020: Given the COVID-19 pandemic and global restrictions, many of us are wondering when we will be able to come together again as a scientific community. We currently plan to go ahead with the EACR Congress in Torino, 9-12 June 2021. But we recognise that there is still some uncertainty around large events and international travel.

That’s why as well as planning for the in-person congress we’ve decided to plan for the possibility of a virtual congress with a virtual poster exhibition, in case the in-person event can’t happen. This means that anyone who submits an abstract for EACR 2021 will be able to present it as long as it is accepted – either in Torino, or if this can’t go ahead then at the virtual event.

We hope that this will provide reassurance to anyone who is thinking about submitting their abstract for the congress. Abstract submission is open now – you can submit here.

About the Congress

EACR 2021 is a four day congress dedicated to basic, preclinical and translational cancer research across a wide breadth of topics. It will highlight the latest research and bring together the cancer research community to inspire innovation and build knowledge, connections and collaborations.

The European Association for Cancer Research (EACR) is a non-profit membership association dedicated to the advancement of cancer research. We have been bringing cancer researchers together at our congress and conferences since 1968, and EACR 2021 is our 26th congress. Click here to find out more about us and join as a member.
