ESPEN Congress 2015
5-8 September 2015
WELCOME TO ESPEN 2015 A TRULY UNIQUE EVENT
On behalf of the Local Organising Committee and the Portuguese Society for Enteral and Parenteral Nutrition (APNEP), we would like to invite you to the 37th ESPEN Congress 2015 which will be held in Lisbon, Portugal, for the second time.
The venue will be at the international Congress Centre of Lisbon (CCL) along the Tagus River, between the Jeronimos Monastery and the Belem Tower, both considered world heritage monuments. From the Congress Centre you may take the yellow tram which will drive you to the old part of town with its narrow and steeply streets. The City is just 20 minutes from the Airport and 10 minutes from downtown. Lisbon is a charming city with historic traces of the Roman and Moorish periods, with very old and typical neighbourhoods, but it’s also a modern, peaceful and safe city, where you can walk around at any time of the day. Discover an excellent cuisine (and wine!), a beautiful light in a friendly atmosphere.
Together with the ESPEN Committees Members, the local organisers have constructed an attractive and innovative programme and assure you that the meeting will be an important landmark in ESPEN’s continuing contribution to the improvement of Nutritional Care and Education.
We hope that ESPEN 2015 will be a great opportunity for physicians, dietitians, pharmacists, scientists and nurses dedicated to the field of nutrition and metabolism, to meet and discuss the most recent data in an informal atmosphere, strengthening old and new collaborations. We choose the motto “healthy life through nutrition” with the aim of exploring how a good nutrition from early in life to later stages may contribute to a healthier society.
We hope to see you in Lisbon in 2015!
Jorge da Fonseca
