International collaboration on the highly important subject of colorectal cancer screening, especially during the pandemic, remains the main focus of the WEO Colorectal Cancer Screening Committee (CRC SC) in these difficult times, the leadership is dedicated to the virtual continuation of the Committee’s work. Thus, CRC SC chair Professor Evelien Dekker, together with the Expert Working Group chairs, has organized a series of weekly webinars in the six weeks leading up to the CRC SC plenary meeting. “Each Expert Working Group has its own focus on important aspects within CRC screening and it is imperative, now more than ever, to stay connected and learn from one another,” says Dekker. Details for each webinar can be found on WEO’s website:

The webinars will lead up to the CRC SC’s virtual plenary meeting on May 20, 2021, for which the planning committee is creating the scientific program. At present, last-minute suggestions for topics for the CRC SC plenary meeting are still being accepted, so if you wish to put forward a specific topic, send an email to by April 5, 2021 at the latest. We look forward to welcoming you online!
