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 past and forthcoming meetings.

2020 Annual Meeting

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, 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.

The 2020 meeting will include a range of sessions:

• Promoting global partnerships: innovative strategies to drive international collaborations in cancer research

• Hot topics in cancer research: including Living with and beyond cancer, Prevention, Personalised Medicine, Open Access, Childhood cancer, and Harnessing & linking real-world data to accelerate cancer research

• Trends in cancer research – gaps and opportunities for co-funding

• Networking opportunities with other cancer research funders


Further details and a full programme will be released later this year.
