We just completed our 5th PREFERABLE consortium meeting. Great to work as a team with very motivated people. It is also encouraging that recruitment is going well under the current circumstances for both the EFFECT and PERSPECTIVE study.

PREFERABLE consists of an international consortium of nine academic partners, one cutting edge game development and software engineering SME , one science-driven clinical trial management company and one European patient organisation (EUROPA DONNA – The European Breast Cancer Coalition, representing 47 countries throughout Europe). The partners are from seven countries in the Netherlands, Germany, Sweden, Poland, Spain, Italy and Australia and are coordinated by the University Medical Center Utrecht, the Netherlands.
