About the Meeting
It is with great pleasure that we announce the next EGS Members’ Meeting which will be held in Reykjavik, Iceland on the 14th and 15th July 2023.
This year’s meeting marks a milestone for the EGS ongoing projects. The meeting is designed as interactive sessions during which, in addition to reporting and reviewing our ongoing Strategic Projects, valuable input from the EGS members will be collected to support the next steps and success of the Projects. These Strategic Projects are pivotal for our evolving Society and its Vision and Mission.
The meeting will offer a scientific programme with the Surgical, Real World Data Taskforces, Research Priorities Project and the new EGS Fellowship Program. Objectives reached so far and future planning of the projects will be discussed. The Outcomes Committee will enrich discussion and provide with input throughout the various projects as relevant. A workshop will mark a highlight of the meeting, as it will be a conclusive milestone of the EGS Research Priorities project where important research questions will be framed according to the PICO process.
We do hope that EGS members can attend this year’s Members’ Meeting, as it will provide an excellent opportunity for scientific exchange and networking among colleagues and friends, facilitated by a carefully planned social programme in a unique destination.
