Athens has been chosen to host the Congress of the European Society for Organ Transplantation in September 2023.
The congress is a prestigious event for the international scientific community that brings together top medical doctors and scientists from all over the world. Hosting the conference will help to promote the growing Greek life sciences industries, particularly the transplant sector.
Athens will host more than 3,500 transplant experts from around the world, while an equal number of delegates are expected to attend the congress online.
"This is a great opportunity for Greece to become more active in organ donation and transplantation," professor John Fouzas, president of the Hellenic Society of Transplantation.
The strengthening of our advantages in convention tourism is a central priority for the City of Athens as part of our plan for economic development in the region," added the Mayor of Athens, Kostas Bakoyannis.
