Detall de la convocatòria


Característiques principals
UICC’s mission is to unite the cancer community, to reduce the global cancer burden, to promote greater equity, and to integrate cancer control into the world health and development agenda.

In 2017, the International Cancer Technology Transfer (ICRETT) fellowship programme was renamed the UICC Technical Fellowships (UICC-TF), which now has a greater emphasis on cancer control, and less on basic research.
Característiques principals
The aim of the UICC Technical Fellowships is to
  • facilitate rapid international transfer of cancer control techniques
  • exchange knowledge and enhance skills in all areas of cancer control (including research, clinical and public health interventions)
  • ensure the effective application and use of the newly acquired skills in the home organization upon return. UICC supports health workers and cancer professionals focussing on cancer control, including cancer prevention, early detection, epidemiology, implementation and translational research, cancer treatment (surgery, radio- and chemotherapy), multidisciplinary patient care, rehabilitation, survivorship and palliative care.
