This session, run in partnership with the International Cancer Research Partnership, will be looking at paediatric cancers and highlight how cancer research funders are currently collaborating to advance this area of research and clinical care internationally. Speakers will discuss ways in which to galvanise support for more international collaboration to maximise investments in funding. By the end of the session, attendees will have a better understanding of how this collaborative model is working and what could be done to improve it even further.
