Scientific Congress Office Chair

For Prof. Albers, this marks the end of an eventful term that started in 2020. The scientific programmes of two virtual congresses and two in-person congresses were designed under his watchful eye, with a new focus on topics like research and hard science, increased audience interaction and the presentation of the latest major developments.

The Scientific Congress Office maintains the highest scientific level for the Annual EAU Congresses and is composed of two committees: the Scientific Congress Committee and the Video Congress Committee. The chair of the EAU Scientific Congress Office also acts as chair of the Scientific Congress Committee. The Scientific Congress Committee is responsible for composing the entire scientific programme of the Annual EAU Congress: the general outline of the congress programme, the selection of topics, reviewers, speakers as well as the selection of abstracts to be accepted and other special events.
