The European Society for Clinical Nutrition and Metabolism



ESPEN is now affiliated with UEG!

Good news! At the occasion of the 25 th UEG Congress ( Barcelona/13 000 attendees) ESPEN is becoming the 17th scientific society or organisation to be  affiliated with UEG.UEG ( United European Gastroenterology) is a huge organisation playing the role of a platform to join all the societies that are involved in the field of Gastroenterology. ESPGHAN was already an UEG member.
We are convinced that our participation to UEG will contribute to the promotion of the nutrition field in the domain of gastroenterology. The UEG President -Prof Michael Manns- did welcome André Van Gossum, Stephane Schneider and Stephan Bischoff who were representing ESPEN.


The 24th ESPEN Course on Clinical Nutrition and Metabolism
