Athens Fosters Organ Transplantation

Athens has been chosen to host the Congress of the European Society for Organ Transplantation in September 2023. The announcement was made at the 2019 Congress held this month in Copenhagen. The selection of Athens proves the strength of the city’s convention industry and medical communities as highlighted in the successful cooperation between the Hellenic Transplant Society and This is Athens-Convention & Visitors Bureau.

The Congress of the European Society for Organ Transplantation is a prestigious event for the international scientific community that brings together top medical doctors and scientists from all over the world. The opportunity to host the conference in Athens will create a positive impact for the city while promoting the growing Greek life sciences industries, particularly the transplant sector.

“This is a great opportunity for Greece to become more active in organ donation and transplantation. In 2023, Athens will host more than 3,500 transplant experts from around the world, while an equal number of delegates are expected to attend the congress online,” said Professor John Fouzas, president of the Hellenic Society of Transplantation.
