StratCan arranges regular retreats to promote interaction and discussion among the scientists as well as to present research and infrastructure supported by StratCan.
The StratCan Kick-Off meeting was held November 2-3, 2010 at Häringe Slott near Stockholm.
The first StratCan retreat was held November 10-11, 2011 at Skogshem & Wijk, Lidingö. The two other national Strategic Research Programs in Cancer, U-CAN and BioCare, were invited to the retreat and this lay ground for the joint Swedish Cancer Research Meetings.
StratCan and the KICancer Researchers Network have joined forces and the annual retreat 2017 was a joint venture: the XVth KICancer & StratCan Retreat, held September 25-26, 2017 at Djurönäset in the Stockholm archipelago. This annual retreat will continue as a joint event and brings together the Cancer researchers at Karolinska Institutet and University Hospital.
