The European Association for Cancer Education will hold its 32nd annual meeting in the beautiful city of Porto in Portugal.
Porto is situated at the coast of the Atlantic sea in the northwest of Portugal. It is known for its magnificent bridges and the production of Port wine. There is a famous medieval quarter with lots of cafes and shops as well as many beautiful baroque buildings.
The meeting will be hosted by i3s - Institute for Research and Innovation in Health, headed by the University of Porto (UPorto).
Our aim is to improve clinical outcomes through education and training of individuals involved within the cancer and palliative care continuum and to facilitate communication and networking between those involved in cancer education. This we want to achieve with an interesting scientific program including invited talks, abstract sessions and workshops.
At the end of the meeting we will invite you to a festive gala dinner where you will have the opportunity to strengthen the new contacts you have made throughout the meeting.
On behalf of EACE and the local organising committee we hope to welcome you in Porto!

i3s - Institute for Research and Innovation in Health
The i3S consortium headed by the University of Porto (UPorto), brings together four institutions and researchers from several schools of the UPorto, thus consolidating an extensive collaboration between all institutions that spans many years.
The long-term collaboration between IBMC, INEB and IPATIMUP, from which stems i3S, encompasses joint projects, co-supervision of PhD students, sharing of large equipment and employment of research staff under coordinated policies. Six schools of the UPorto (FMUP, ICBAS, FMDUP, FCUP, FEUP and FFUP) and three hospitals (CH S João, CH Porto and IPO) also contribute to the activities of i3S. This wide participation of schools, research institutions and hospitals in a research institute is unique in Portugal and is a valuable asset for science and technology development, while creating an environment that feeds real breakthrough research and translation of discoveries into the clinic.
The new building – completed in 2015 – is also a key element in the creation of this vibrant environment. This intricate network that is i3S focuses on three Integrative Programs: Cancer, Host Response and Interaction, and Neurobiology and Neurologic Disease.
