MiCo Convention Centre, Milan, Italy

The 20th edition of the European Society for Organ Transplantation’s (ESOT) biennial congress!

Through a multidisciplinary approach, the Congress featured the latest research and innovation from most prominent scientists and physicians in the field of organ transplantation.

Guaranteed to motivate and inspire, this landmark meeting provided a unique opportunity to connect science and medicine.

Thank You for Attending ESOT Congress 2021! 

Thank you for your valuable participation at the 20th ESOT Congress.

The meeting truly delivered world-class science, from ground-breaking abstract-based presentations to Think Tank sessions full of debate and discussion.

It has been a great opportunity to network once again – both online via our virtual platform and for those onsite in Milan – helping to foster collaboration and future partnerships.

The preparation for this hybrid meeting has required novel technologies, creative imagination and tremendous collaboration. As a community, these are qualities that we deliver each day in our field, and we hope that the Congress motivated and inspired you to continue to do so to improve the lives of our patients across the world.   

The journey does not stop today – we encourage you to continue using our platform to revisit sessions on-demand and join ESOT in the development of our vision for equitable and sustainable transplantation in Europe and beyond.

With warmest regards, 

Umberto Cillo, Congress Co-Chair and ESOT Secretary 

Luciano Potena, SPC Co-Chair and ESOT President
