Statutory activities of ECIL include: developing recommendations on the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of infectious complications in patients with leukaemia and other haematological cancers or undergoing haematopoietic stem cell transplantation; adopting current strategies for anti-infective patient management in haematology and haematopoietic stem cell transplantation; facilitating cooperation between individual working groups, as well as defining new directions for clinical research.

Participation in ECIL projects is only possible upon invitation by the Organisation Committee, which is granted to researchers with notable scientific achievements. ECIL has so far published 35 sets of recommendations for the management of infectious complications in haematology and haematopoietic stem cell transplantation.
