26th EORS Annual Meeting
25 – 28th September 2018, Galway, Ireland
The European Orthopaedic Research Society (EORS) promotes education, research, innovation, clinical translation and social responsibility in orthopaedics. EORS meetings provide a forum to discuss orthopaedic-related challenges and achievements, in research, clinical and commercial space.
We are pleased to announce EORS 2018 meeting to be held from the 25th to the 28th of September 2018 at Galway, Ireland. The programme of the EORS 2018 will include specific workshops and symposia in orthopaedic related tools, technologies and discoveries; clinical trials; regulatory approval of new devices; scaling up; commercialisation; career development of young investigators; women leadership and representation; education; outreach; and science with an artistic twist. Numerous activities will be organised to enhance the career development / employability of early stage researchers / investigators. Further, we will provide a forum to all European Commission orthopaedic related projects to showcase the high quality work conducted within Europe. The meeting is highly important to scientists, clinicians and industries interested in orthopaedic therapies that aspire to revolutionise healthcare with their reparative capacity.
The EORS 2018 meeting will be held at Galway, Ireland. Galway hosts the highest number of medical device companies in Europe. The world-class education, learning, knowledge, research and innovation experience that NUI Galway offers has played a catalytic role in establishing Galway as a multi-national biomedical hub word-wide.
The arty and bohemian Galway is renowned for its vibrantly painted houses, the heaving with live music pubs, the tangled lanes packed with street performers, the medieval town walls, the warm handmade Aran sweaters, the traditional handcrafted Claddagh rings, the arch-bridges over the salmon-stuffed Corrib river, the world-famous Galway Bay oysters, the spectacular countryside scenery, its literary tradition, the welcoming and friendly inhabitants, the numerous festivals. It is not a coincident that recently Galway bestowed the honour of European Capital of Culture 2020.
We are looking forward to welcoming you at Galway for an excellent EORS 2018 meeting.
