Young Talent Group

What we do

UEG expands strategies and programmes to promote young talent and build a growing community of tomorrow’s leaders in European gastroenterology that will positively influence digestive health worldwide.

The Young Talent Group is aimed at attracting the new generation of digestive healthcare specialists to UEG and helping them to become tomorrow’s experts in research and clinical practice.

We work in close collaboration with young sections and their representatives in UEG’s member societies.
