Scientific Committee

What we do

We are entrusted with developing the core programme of UEG Week.

We meet four times a year and are in constant communication with the UEG Secretariat to smooth out the details of the scientific programme management. This on-going and dynamic relationship is key to the high quality programme people have come to expect at UEG Week.
