ESPEN has decided to organize a second, fully virtual Congress for 2021.

With a big thank you to the Milano team, all of ESPEN will put its best energies and enthusiasm to continue to promote nutritional care through a virtual Congress, committed to disseminating the best science, education, and innovative concepts in our field.

We will aim at creating new opportunities for interaction, further innovations, and initiatives to enhance these exchanges, as well as effective presentation of original findings and new topics through a renewed and updated programme. We are committed to building an enhanced technical platform and tools to ensure fruitful and smooth participation for all.

Ease of access, on-demand options for those of us in very different time-zones, and presenters use the web-chat platform. I felt more engaged with the presenters than I often do at face-to-face conferences.
