UEG Week and Postgraduate Teaching (PGT) are the premier venues for researchers from across the globe to present their latest findings. UEG Week combines world-class scientific research and invited lectures by leading minds in gastroenterology. Multidisciplinary is a key focus of UEG, which is why UEG Week and PGT cover topics of interest for the entire GI community (the myUEG Community). With our first-ever hybrid congress, we are ecstatic to provide you with the best of both worlds via our in-person (Vienna) and virtual formats. 

Registration is open from March 29 to October 11, 2022.
