Oncology Congress plans to Leave a Legacy in Glasgow

Glasgow has been selected to host the European Society for Radiotherapy and Oncology (ESTRO)’s Annual Congress in 2023, Europe’s largest meeting on radiation oncology. The event will take place at the Scottish Event Campus (SEC) and is expected to attract over 6,000 participants.
The selection of the location for the conference was based on two distinct elements – the logistical capacity to host this global event in Glasgow at the SEC, and more importantly, the co-creation of an engagement project led by Professor Chalmers. This engagement project will have a tangible impact on patient outcomes, delivering on ESTRO’s vision: “Optimal Health for All, Together”.
Professor Anthony Chalmers, Chair of Clinical Oncology at the University of Glasgow said: “We are thrilled that Glasgow has been selected as the host for ESTRO’s Annual Congress.  ESTRO’s goal is to demonstrate progress in the optimal use of radiation oncology. The congress is a catalyst for us to deliver the local engagement project which aims to increase the use of radiotherapy for cancer patients across the West of Scotland.
