Welcome to the EFR - European Federation for coloRectal Cancer. The EFR was founded in May 2003. This organisation is committed to researching colorectal cancer, the most common type of cancer in Europe. Vienna – due to its long-standing medical history – was the logical favourite as location of the EFR homebase. The EFR is a non – profit association for physicians and non-physician healthcare with special interest in colorectal cancer.

Its aims are promoting postgraduate training and finally developing treatment concepts by conducting large international trials to improve the treatment options for colorectal carcinoma within the new European Union. On this site you will find information about our Workshops and International Meetings, scientific journal, fellowship training programs, research grant opportunities, criteria for becoming a member, and much more.

Yours sincerely,

Béla Teleky


President of the EFR
