26th EORS Annual Meeting
25 – 28th September 2018, Galway, Ireland
The European Orthopaedic Research Society (EORS) meetings provide a forum to discuss achievements, challenges and opportunities in orthopaedic, musculoskeletal and trauma education, research, development and clinical translation. The programme of the EORS 2018 will include over 80 symposia in tools, technologies and discoveries that aspire to revolutionise healthcare with their reparative capacity. Uniquely, the programme of EORS 2018 will also include 4 workshops in education, career development, women leadership and outreach to provide a holistic training experience to early career investigators. Over 100 renowned engineers, scientists, clinicians and entrepreneurs will deliver inspiring invited talks, whilst exhibitors, sponsors and corporate partners will showcase the state of art in the field. We will work towards receiving accreditation from the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education and we will comply with the ethical values of Ethical MedTech Europe.
The EORS 2018 meeting will be held at Galway, Ireland. The world-class education, research and innovation experience that the National University of Ireland Galway offers has played a catalytic role in establishing Galway as a 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 and 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.
