Looking back on the Eurotransplant Annual Meeting 2022

Eurotransplant looks back on a successful Annual Meeting which took place from September 22-23, 2022 in Sassenheim, the Netherlands. We had the pleasure of welcoming more than 250 attendees from Eurotransplant member countries as well as guest speakers from Spain, France, Sweden, United Kingdom and Italy sharing their best practices and research.  

One of the highlights was the announcement of the winner of the Jon van Rood award. Dr. med. Georg Györi received the award for research on ‘Optimizing risk assessment before liver transplantation’. The award was handed out by Prof. Dr. Markus Guba (Chair Council of Medicine and Science) during the Eurotransplant Annual Meeting via livestream. 

We are glad that opportunities to exchange ideas were greatly used and many participants were actively involved in discussing new developments related to organ donation, allocation and transplantation. We thank all chairpersons and speakers for their valuable contribution and the interesting discussions.   

The Powerpointpresentations of the sessions will be listed on the membersite under ‘Organization’, click ‘Annual Meeting’. 

As soon as the exact date and venue of the Annual Meeting 2023 are known, we will publish this information on the Eurotransplant website.

Throughout the year, Eurotransplant aims to connect with the ET community in various ways. The yearly in-person Winter meeting is one of them. With due regard to the current COVID-19 situation, Eurotransplant has decided to cancel the organization of the Winter Meeting 2022. The purpose of the Winter Meeting can simply not be fulfilled by organizing the event online. We will keep looking for other ways to stay connected, while still holding on to all safety measures. We will keep you updated about this via our online communication channels.
