The EAU Section of Urolithiasis (EULIS) and UroTechnology (ESUT), both founded as separate societies, joined the EAU family as super-specialised sections more than 2 decades ago. Under the umbrella of the EAU Section Office, both Sections became drivers of innovation in endourological and minimal-invasive therapies for many indications, always with a focus on optimising treatment modalities to improve patient outcomes. Not only surgical procedures, but research, metabolic evaluation, medical treatment, and training have been important areas of activity. Moreover it includes the involvement of affiliated non-urology health professionals such as nephrologists, dieticians, and research scientists.

Under the leadership of Professors Gözen (DE) and Seitz (AS), both Sections closely worked together, also illustrated by the successful collaborative UroTech meetings in Istanbul (2022) and recently Vienna (2024), for which we express our sincere gratitude. A unified Section evolving from the foundations of EULIS and ESUT would be the logical next step. After meetings with the current respective boards, the decision was made to form the ‘EAU Section of EndoUroTechnology’.
