ICRP Events


ICRP’s mission is to improve access to information about global cancer research funding, and enable cancer research funding organizations to work collaboratively to address common challenges. Our annual meetings are a great opportunity to connect with other cancer research funders, identify gaps in funding, explore options for collaborative funding and exchange innovative ideas. Registration is free – please see below for information about registration and the draft program.

2020 Annual Meeting


Due to concern about the Coronavirus and travel restrictions, the annual meeting will be postponed. We are exploring options for rescheduling at a later date.

We would like to extend a warm invitation to cancer research funders worldwide to attend the International Cancer Research Partnership’s 2020 annual meeting. The meeting will be held on May 12 – 13, 2020 in London, at the Royal Pharmaceutical Society HQ, hosted by the UK National Cancer Research Institute. Representatives from major cancer research organizations in the US, Canada, Europe, Australia and Japan attend the meeting, in addition to guests from other cancer research organizations worldwide. ICRP is a unique alliance of cancer organizations (currently representing over 130 major cancer research funders and institutions) working together to enhance global collaboration and strategic coordination of research. We aim to improve access to information about cancer research being conducted, explore opportunities for cooperation between funding agencies and enable our members to maximize the impact of their independent efforts. A report of last year’s meeting can be found here.
