The European Network for Gynaecological Oncological Trial groups (ENGOT) is a research network of the European Society of Gynaecological Oncology (ESGO) and was founded in Berlin in October 2007.

Currently, ENGOT consists of 20 trial groups from 25 European countries that perform cooperative clinical trials.

ENGOT is led by two chairs. At this moment the clinical chair is Prof. Sandro Pignata from Italy and the administrative chair is Dr. Regina Berger from Austria.

The chairs are changed every two years. The past chairs were Prof. Christian Marth from Austria and Dr. Federico Nepote from Spain.


Mission Statement

ENGOT is a platform that guarantees that the European spirit and culture is incorporated into the medical progress in gynaecological oncology, and that all European patients and countries can participate in an active way in clinical research and progress.
The ultimate goal is to bring the best treatment to gynaecological cancer patients through the best science, and enabling every patient in every European country to access a clinical trial.

As a network of national and regional clinical trial units, ENGOT coordinates and promotes clinical trials within Europe on patients with gynaecological cancer.

This coordination is particularly relevant for academic clinical trials, translational research, research on rare diseases, and for clinical trials sponsored by the industry to perform multinational studies in Europe.

The ENGOT Assembly further set up the following objectives and strategies:

  • Incorporate Translational Research into clinical trials and develop a Phase I-II trials network
  • Harmonize operational aspects and improve quality of trials
  • Provide teaching and mentoring (physician and admin) in order to improve and disseminate the knowledge of conducting clinical trials
  • Increase collaboration of all groups
