Mission

Advancing gastroenterology care: To improve the prevention and care of digestive diseases in Europe through providing education, supporting research and improving clinical standards.

Vision

We will be a democratic, efficient and expanding organisation acting as the united voice of European gastroenterology. We will deliver cutting edge education and training, and facilitate and disseminate world-leading research. We will work to improve clinical standards and services and to reduce health inequalities across Europe. To achieve these goals, we will listen to and learn from healthcare professionals, scientists, our patients and the public and we will work closely with politicians and policy-makers.
