The Congress

EAU21: A Welcome return to Milan!

For our 36th Annual Congress, we are returning to Italy’s fashion capital after previous successful editions in 2008 and most recently in 2013. The five-day scientific programme includes live surgery, state-of-the-art lectures, case discussions and debates. Thousands of abstracts are submitted each year by emerging scientists and the EAU offers hundreds of them a chance to present their research. For this edition, we are including patient and nursing speakers to the programme, emphasising the multidisciplinary nature of urology.

The Annual Congress is also an opportunity for young urologists to attend educational courses by the European School of Urology, and to hone their surgical skills through a variety of hands-on-training workshops. The congress features a vast Exhibition where pharmaceutical and technology companies can showcase their latest products. We are using Milan’s reputation as a global centre for fashion and style to launch a new design language for our Annual Congress. As you can see, the new design combines the imagery of urology with the iconic aspects of Milan and Italy in general.

Together, we can make EAU21 in Milan a triumph for urological healthcare. We look forward to hearing from you!
