Federation Structure

Organisational Structure

UEG consisting of 16 Ordinary Member Societies and 46 National Societies is a vibrant organisation that constantly adapts to the changing requirements of scientific research and health care. 

It ensures that all UEG Specialist- and National Member Societies are represented appropriately. Each Society sends representatives to the General Assembly, the highest organ of UEG. The assembly elects the Council and Executive Committee (consisting of President and President-Elect, Secretary General and Treasurer). These two bodies run and manage UEG's business.

UEG, a non-profit organisation

All officers of UEG, regardless of position, provide their effort and time on a complete voluntary basis, thus making UEG a non-profit organisation concerned solely with the well-being of patients. 
To assist them with their tasks the UEG Secretariat manages all the daily activities of UEG, from running the educational programme to organising the annual congress with the support of a PCO. 

Guidelines for membership in UEG committees

The committee structure of UEG enables interested volunteers to play an active role in shaping current and future UEG initiatives and thereby helping advance gastroenterological care in Europe and beyond. Each committee was assigned a set of responsibilities and tasks associated with the different activities of UEG.
