Scientific Programme

Due to the popularity of this year’s Congress, some of the sessions have reached maximum capacity and not everyone attending has been able to access those sessions. You can access the recorded sessions from myESA.

The Scientific Committee, under the chairmanship of Prof Charles Marc Samama and Prof Andreas Hoeft, has elaborated an outstanding programme full of cutting edge innovations in basic and clinical science, innovation in clinical application, education and quality and patient safety improvement.

The programme is organised into 16 Learning Tracks.

You can find the full programme in calendar and list view online here.
