On behalf of EUROSKIN and the organising committee, we kindly invite you to participate in the 5th International UV and Skin Cancer Prevention Virtual Conference, being held Tuesday 7 – Thursday 9 September 2021.
Together with our partners (World Health Organization, Federal Office of Radiation Protection, Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU), The Norwegian Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority, Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority in Finland, Public Health England, The Danish Cancer Society, The Norwegian Cancer Society, European Cancer Leagues, ILDS, ICOH and the Foundation against Cancer) we have developed an attractive programme which brings together outstanding experts from the international scientific and skin cancer prevention community. Through inspiring keynote lectures and invited talks about new developments, discussions and presentations of field work, recommendations for better prevention in the next decades will be developed. It is our aim to foster discussions and summarise our knowledge into shared recommendations, which will help to improve future skin cancer prevention. This is an ambitious aim, but we’re sure that together with your input and help we’ll come to a good and useful result at the end.
Full details of the virtual programme will be announced soon but we very much hope to still bring you the variety of workshops dealing with interesting and new topics in the field, followed by 4 thematic sessions that will showcase important scientific advances.
EUROSKIN, The European Society of Skin Cancer Prevention, has been dedicated to skin cancer prevention for many decades.
Skin cancer incidence is still increasing in most of the European countries, and worldwide, in the fair skinned population. This is still the result of changes in lifestyle, ongoing use of sunbeds and occupational UV. It is not trivial to predict how climate changes, along with increasing temperature, will change our behaviour in the future and affect our UV-exposure. Therefore, there is still a need to improve primary and secondary prevention of skin cancer by means of behavioral and environmental changes in order to reduce the impact of skin cancer. EUROSKIN, is convinced that only continuous preventive work, based on scientific evidence, will help to reduce number of skin cancer cases in the future.
Therefore, it will be a pleasure for us to welcome you virtually, 7 – 9 September 2021. We thank the organising committee, Fuse staff, participants, workshop and session chairs, keynote and plenary speakers for helping us to build this very exciting conference program. The Organising and Scientific Committee will make a considerable effort to make sure that your participation will be scientifically rewarding and also a pleasurable experience.
