European Institute of Oncology was established to implement an innovative model for health and advanced research in the international oncology field. Its Division and Unit Directors come from eight European countries.
Conceived by Umberto Veronesi and inaugurated in May 1994, the Institute became a research hospital and treatment centre (IRCCS or “Istituto di Ricovero e Cura a Carattere Scientifico”) through the Ministerial Decree issued in January 1996. The European Institute of Oncology adopts the non-profit private-law organisation model and provides services through agreements with Italy’s National Health Service.
In keeping with the standards of the most advanced international oncology centres, the Institute fully integrates different activities involved in the fight against cancer: prevention and diagnosis, health education and training, research and treatment.
