The establishment of the register takes place within the framework of the "Starter" project, which involves the creation of a European infrastructure for the ERN Euracan network, the European network of centres dealing with solid adult cancer.

The project will involve 22 European centers and the start of patient recruitment will take place from 1 December in collaboration also with the department of Osteoncology directed by Dr. Toni Ibrahim.
