UEG Week – Virtual 2020

Meet. Exchange. Evolve

Dear UEG Board, Committee & Taskforce members,

The situation that we are currently facing as a society is the greatest global health challenge seen in decades. UEG’s Council has carefully assessed the risk and drawn feasibility plans of how UEG Week can adapt to this unprecedented situation.

UEG regards the health and safety of our community as a top priority and now leads by example, in taking this important decision:

Let’s meet, exchange and evolve virtually for the best gastroenterology congress in the world!

UEG Week Virtual 2020 will take place from October 11-13, 2020. No matter the format, we remain dedicated to organising a high-quality meeting that will still allow instant interaction and advanced scientific exchange in real-time. Our scientific programme will uphold the UEG standard by bringing you the latest and greatest in science and remaining state of the art.

Now more than ever, we need to stand united to ensure that gastroenterology is advancing as a medical and scientific discipline. We are thrilled to offer this new virtual platform, now even more accessible to our global community from every corner of the world.

You – our volunteers – receive this information in advance, and the rest of our community will be notified tomorrow. Our website will be updated then and details for registration, as well as a list of regularly updated FAQs will be available shortly.

Grow with us – Let’s experience UEG’s first-ever virtual congress together!

The project managers in the UEG Secretariat will get in touch with you with further details on the virtual framework, and to discuss how your committee can be involved in valuable online activities for the community and to plan remote business meetings during the next months.
