Prof Eggermont hosts a press conference at ESMO 2014 about the Cancer Core Europe initiative, which looks to collate data and research from six key European cancer centres to create a fully integrated and collaborative 'e-hospital'.

Six cancer centres of international note have announced the creation of Cancer Core Europe: a consortium to address the cancer care/cancer research continuum challenge.

The optimal treatment of cancer remains one of the major medical challenges globally, due to the high diversity in the spectrum of mutations in individual cancer patients.

To tackle this issue, cancer programmes must be better integrated and performed at a large scale.
