Word of welcome

On behalf of ESGENA and the Austrian Society of Endoscopy and Gastroenterology Nurses and Associates (IVEPA), it is our great pleasure to invite you to the 20th ESGENA Conference which will be held during the 24th United European Gastroenterology Week, October 15-17, 2016 in Vienna, Austria.

ESGENA will celebrate its 20th Anniversary in Vienna. Since its foundation in Berlin in 1996, ESGENA has established close co-operation with more than 40 countries within Europe and overseas. ESGENA provides an excellent platform for strong networking and the exchange of information. Educational structures include the development of curricula, standards and guidelines as well as the establishment of clinical grants for individual nurses. 

The Conference in Vienna is a good chance to reflect on the recent developments of the society and to discuss cutting-edge ideas. The jubilee also invites you to discuss new projects and the advancement of the profession with experts. 

The ESGENA conference is also an excellent opportunity to meet colleagues from different countries. The exchange with nurses from all over the world combined with the opportunity to attend the medical programme of UEG Week ensures the ESGENA conference is an exceptional educational event.

The three day ESGENA conference will include state-of-the-art lectures, free papers & posters, lunch sessions, several workshops with hands-on training and live transmissions covering current topics in Gastroenterology and Endoscopy. 

We hope to welcome you to the 20th ESGENA Conference in October 2016 in Vienna, Austria.
