The ESPEN 2022 Congress

This Congress is the result of the collaboration of three countries: Austria, Croatia and Slovenia. All three neighbouring countries are small in size, but great in shared history, architecture, art, music, landscape beauty, delicious national specialties, and – most importantly – people. We believe that this common abundance of history, culture and science is a guarantee that the ESPEN Congress 2022 will be an outstanding congress in an unforgettable setting.

With this international collaboration, we have developed a program that will continue with the past traditions of innovation and improvement of nutritional care and education of all professions involved in the field of nutrition and metabolism. We encourage all of you to actively participate and exchange your valuable experience – curiosity isn't just a way of understanding the world, it is a way of changing it.
