The EU has launched several research initiatives related to COVID-19 in Horizon 2020 Programme
In the current crisis, medical associations must lead by example. The health and safety of our community is our top priority and our thoughts are with affected patients and healthcare staff.
The rapid spread of the novel Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) poses unprecedented challenges to all of us. We proceed in parallel with national and international health authorities.
We have decided not to hold meetings for the remainder of 2020. We will conduct virtual meetings wherever possible.
Nationwide lockdowns imposed on many countries have required the cancellation or postponement of several congresses.
UEG Week Virtual 2020 will take place from October 11-13, 2020: Let’s meet, exchange and evolve virtually for the best gastroenterology congress in the world!
With the help of experts in our community we have collected relevant links to official publications and scientific articles.
Updates and new articles will be added as they become available.
