SIOP Europe is the only pan-European organisation representing all professionals working in paediatric oncology. CCI Europe and SIOP Europe have established a formal agreement of cooperation in the areas of Research and Development, access to standards of care and expertise, social sciences and ethics and the improvements to the regulatory and political environment at pan-European and national level.
