ESPE Science Symposium 2021 - Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia

Aimed at paediatricians and basic researchers, to promote the dissemination of new scientific knowledge within the paediatric endocrinology community, developing an interactive network and closing the gap between scientific research and patient care.



27 Oct
Registration Deadline


We cordially invite you to the second ESPE Science Symposium which will take place online on October 29th and 30th, 2021. Due to the uncertainty with regard to COVID-19, the organizing committee has decided to change the live symposium in Nijmegen, the Netherlands into an online symposium so that clinicians and researchers from around the world can all participate without having to deal with travelling restrictions etc.

The ESPE science symposium aims to promote the development of an interactive network between clinicians and researchers, helping to reduce the gap between research and patient care. It will also provide the means to disseminate new scientific knowledge in the community of paediatric endocrinology. The symposium is organized every two years by a Local Organizing Committee (LOC) selected through an application process by the ESPE Science Committee.

Please visit the event website for full details on the the programme, how to apply, the venue and more.


This symposium is online. Delegates may come from any professional clinical and scientific discipline which is related directly or indirectly to the topic. The congress fee is € 80 per attendee. 


Young clinician registration - NOW CLOSED

ESPE offers 25 free registrations spaces for young clinicians and scientists in training over the 2 days (those who are less than 8 years ((full-time equivalent)) since completion of doctorate training, working within the field upon competitive application).
