Mission and Vision
The European School of Oncology is an independently funded non profit organisation dedicated to quality education and training, because we believe all patients deserve equal access to competent cancer care.
ESO was originally founded in 1982 by Umberto Veronesi and Laudomia Del Drago who were passionate about reducing the number of cancer deaths as a result of late diagnosis or inadequate treatment. Today we are continuing that passion by providing oncology education that helps improve the treatment of cancer patients. Through our extensive learning programmes, we’re reaching areas where education is most needed, both geographically and scientifically.
