The 4th PARTNER Consortium meeting of the ERN-PAEDCAN Partner: Paediatric Rare Tumours Network – European Registry was held on 7 June 2019 and hosted by Crona Hospitals Tübingen (Germany).  This project meeting was followed by the 3rd IT Consensus meeting on Creation of a European registry for paediatric patients with very rare tumours and harmonised procedures of data registration (Dr. Ines Brecht – EKUT).

The PARTNER Project meeting was opened by the Gianni Bisogno (Project Coordinator) who warmly welcomed all participants.  The meeting topics included the current status and plans for the coming series of collaborative activities as well as dissemination through future participation in conferences and publication of results. The advisory board members joined the general assembly session in the morning to get an overview of the project progress. It was concluded that the third semester of PARTNER Project has been very successful.

All partners continue to have high motivation to collaborate and to achieve high-level results. Technical results have already been achieved, which is also underlined by 3 journal papers and 8 conference papers submitted in the first project year. The work is therefore running according to schedule. The advisory board members expressed their satisfaction with the course of the project and provided valuable comments concerning upcoming activities.
