Annual General Meeting 2019

April 12 - April 14

The aim of this meeting is to educate and build capacity of our member organisations in a number of levels and help them increase their skills so they can act in a more efficient way at national level.

LuCE plans to hold its Annual General Meeting and General Assembly in Geneva on April 13-14 coinciding with the celebration of the European Lung Cancer Congress. The meeting will cover the General Assembly, for half a day, and a full day Masterclass that will cover the topics below:

  • Implementation and use of the LuCE Report on challenges in clinical trials
  • Understanding scientific publications
  • Collaborating in lung cancer patient registries
  • Engaging with media and journalists
  • Understanding biosimilars: what they are and what is the impact in the lung cancer community

Top-notch speakers, using proper dynamics so the attendees will be able to take the most out of them, will carry out the sessions. There will also be a slot with industry and collaborators, so we can explore and seek together better ways to collaborate in the near future.
