Welcome Message

Congress 2019

31 August – 3 September 2019, Krakow, Poland

Dear colleagues,

On behalf of the Polish Society for Parenteral, Enteral Nutrition and Metabolism (POLSPEN), we would like to invite you to the 41st ESPEN Congress 2019, which will be held for the first time in Poland.

The Polish Society for Parenteral, enteral Nutrition and Metabolism (POSLPEN) would like to welcome all ESPEN members to the ICE in Krakow, our beautiful international city located at banks of Vistula river. Krakow is the former capital of Poland, a city with many faces, home to centuries of cultural heritage. It has developed its unique international character and importance like a never-ending story to which a little bit of history is added every day.

In close collaboration with the ESPEN Committee Members, we have developed an attractive program that aims to be a landmark in ESPEN’s continuing effort to improve Nutritional Care and Education. As since 2015, there will be 5 parallel sessions along 4 ‘tracks’ throughout the program focusing on topics in the acute, chronic, pediatric and geriatric
settings. We are convinced that the programme of ESPEN 2019 offers a great opportunity for physicians, dietitians, pharmacists, nutritionists, scientists and nurses involved in the field of nutrition and metabolism to meet and discuss cutting edge science in an informal ambience, reinforcing old and stimulating new collaborations.

We sincerely hope to see you in Krakow in 2019!
