National Societies Committee (NSC)

The NSC was formed in April 2013 and the aim of the committee is to implement a bridge function between ESTRO and national societies, considering all different ESTRO Vision statements and taking into account existence and duties of different ESTRO committees. The NSC advises the Board and respective councils on the following key areas:

  1. Creation of a NS database, with updated identification of officially recognised liaison people.
  2. Description of the European frame concerning possible needs and requirements from different NS (periodic surveys and forum with NS regarding items like minimal requirements for a good clinical practice, cost-effectiveness of RO, education  lobbying and oncopolicy, strategic importance of young members.
  3. Direct co-operation and implementation of ad hoc task forces and ongoing projects, like the Health Economics in Radiation Oncology (HERO) project to solve specific needs and considering how important at this regard are the differences between European countries.
  4. Link to the currently existing European Federations belonging to RO community professionals (RP, RTT).
