ECIBC Expert Pool

Call status: open

The ECIBC will rely on the activities of the i) Working Group, supported by the ii) Topic-specific Groups. The Topic-specific Groups will primarily work on healthcare questions, together with independent experts providing systematic reviews to develop proposals for the recommendations and/or requirements to be approved by the Working Group which will act as the decision making body.

Before forming a Topic-specific Group, the respective experts will be asked for their availability.

The ECIBC Expert Pool will serve to:

  • Invite experts to activities, within a limited duration, on specific breast cancer topics;
  • Nominate aditional working group members or to replace a member in case of need.

All clinical, scientific and technical experts in areas related to the initiative (see the expertise required), as well as for patients and/or caregivers, are invited to apply using the online application form.
