Jointly organized with Norway
17-20 September 2016
THE WELCOME MESSAGE
On behalf of the Local Organizing Committee and the Norwegian (NSKE), Danish Society for Enteral and Parenteral Nutrition (DSKE), we would like to invite you to the 38th ESPEN Congress 2016 which for the first time is a collaboration between two countries, Norway and Denmark, and will be held in Copenhagen for the first time.
Venue of the congress will be the international Bella Center which is Scandinavia’s largest exhibition and conference center. It is located in Copenhagen in Ørestad between the city centre and Copenhagen Airport. Bella Center lies less than 10 minutes away from both Copenhagen’s international airport and Copenhagen city centre, and has its own metro. Copenhagen has attractions and sights to suit every taste and interest – and most of them are within walking distance. The three most famous attractions in the city are most likely the more than 100-year old amusement park Tivoli Gardens, the statue of The Little Mermaid, and the free town of Christiania. But Copenhagen has a lot more to offer. With a history that dates back to 1043 the city is full of historic landmarks, significant buildings and interesting sights and museums. Be sure to visit Amalienborg Palace – home to the royal family - and walk down the shopping street Strøget. The restaurant scene is among the worlds most distinct and innovative based on the Nordic kitchen in a friendly atmosphere.
Together with the ESPEN Committee Members, the local organizers from Norway and Denmark have made an attractive and innovative programme based on Collaboration in Nutrition, both between countries, disciplines and patients, creating networking among participants. We hope that ESPEN 2016 will be a great opportunity for physicians, dietitians, pharmacists, scientists and nurses dedicated to clinical nutrition and metabolism, to meet and discuss the most recent data in an informal and friendly international atmosphere, building network and strengthen relations and collaboration.
We hope to see you in Copenhagen 2016!
