Hamburg has won the bid to host the conference of the International Society for Hydrocephalus and Cerebrospinal Fluid Disorders (ISHCSF). In September 2022, about 500 specialists will travel to Germany’s second largest city to attend the ISHCSF annual meeting. The ISHCSF conference is aimed at advancing research into hydrocephalus – a condition in which an accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) builds up within the brain.
Nele Aumann, head of the HCB’s Conventions Division, explains: “We work closely with our dedicated healthcare cluster to ensure medical congresses can tap into the city’s diverse scientific landscape. We highly value this excellent cooperation with the city’s heathcare professionals as their expertise and support considerably increases Hamburg’s chances of winning a tender.” Hamburg’s healthcare cluster brings together the expertise of stakeholders from the healthcare sector, such as companies, universities, research and training institutions, hospitals, care providers, physicians, insurance funds and insurance companies, as well as professional chambers, associations and interest groups.
Hamburg’s winning bid for the International Society for Hydrocephalus and Cerebrospinal Fluid Disorders (ISHCSF) comes hot on the heels of recent successful bids to host the European Association of Neurosurgical Societies (EANS) and the International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR) and confirms the city’s international reputation as a healthcare location.
