EAU Section of Uro-Technology (ESUT) deals with novel technological developments in the field of urology and their application in the clinical practice. Our main objective is to provide a collaborative and stimulating all-European platform for specialists engaged in the field of endourology.
Originally established in 1999, the ESUT was the first section and full member of the EAU. Over the years, the ESUT has grown into a dynamic network of professionals who develop and support a wide range of programmes – independently as well as in collaboration with other EAU Sections, ESU and EUSP.
Below is a quick overview of what we do. For more information please download the latest ESUT flier and on the Section Blog you will find the ongoing projects, resources and the latest news.
To achieve our objective, we carry out a wide range of educational and scientific activities. From ESUT Live Surgery at the Annual EAU Congress, to hands-on-trainings and masterclasses throughout the whole year as well as online, these activities enable urologists to learn very practical skills and be on top of the very latest technology in the field.
The ESUT structure allows for representation of specialists and enables us accomplish our ambitious goals. The ESUT is steered by the Board of ten members plus 3 ex officio members. The ESUT Board is headed by the chairman. The section also actively works with a large number of associates who are distributed in six expert groups, each chaired by a Board member. ESUT faculty consists of well-known European specialists in the fields of endourology, laparoscopy and robotics.
All EAU members with an interest in endoscopic, laparoscopic, robot-assisted as well as percutaneous techniques benefit from the knowledge generated by the ESUT. Uro-technology is an exciting topic for all – young and mid-career specialists as well as experts and pioneers in urology.
If you are interested in developing your skills in the field of uro-technology, you are welcome to make use of our online resources. You are also invited to attend ESUT courses, which are often organised in conjunction with large European and national urology meetings.
