The European Society for Radiotherapy and Oncology, ESTRO, chose Copenhagen for their 2022 Annual Meeting as they were attracted by the city’s two-stringed engagement project. The Congress will run over five days at the Bella Centre Copenhagen and attract an estimated 6.000 participants. Copenhagen will be the focal point for the congress, while meetings leading up to the event will be held across the country.
The engagement project with the overarching theme ‘Improved cancer outcome through collaboration’ offers two areas of focus. Through projects and events, it aims to showcase and translate Danish experience and expertise to ESTRO members before, during and after the congress while also using the ESTRO congress as a catalyst to improve radiotherapy in Denmark and Europe.
“We are very impressed with Copenhagen and the Danish engagement project, which is perfectly aligned with the ESTRO 2030 vision “Optimal Health for All, Together”. This vision aims to improve the outcome and health by enabling and catalysing large networks. Therefore, we are excited to go to Copenhagen in 2022 but also very much looking forward to the engagement work that will take place before, during and after the actual congress,”says Umberto Ricardi, President of ESTRO.
