A new online platform that is run by Elsevier and hosted by the European Journal of Cancer (EJC) is designed to provide healthcare professionals free access to a selection of lectures from the European Cancer Congress (ECC2015), held in Vienna on September 25-29, 2015. Knowledge Speak brought this interesting news to us in their article, “Elsevier’s new ECC Webcasts platform offers free access to webcasts of the European Cancer Congress.”

More than 19,000 oncology professionals attended the conference that split into 25 tracks and featured 634 invited speakers. 46 satellite symposia covered a variety of therapy areas, from therapeutic considerations in advanced renal cell carcinoma to targeting hypoxia to unlock new therapeutic opportunities for solid tumors. All this to say there is a large selection of content to choose from in the ECC webcasts. This is very helpful to those healthcare professionals who were unable to attend the conference.
