Dear Colleagues and Friends,

We are delighted to invite you to the 61st Annual ESPE Meeting to be held in The Hague, Netherlands, 21-23 September 2023.

The theme we have chosen for the 61st ESPE Meeting is “Global Challenges in Paediatric Endocrinology”. All over the world we are faced with important challenges: carbon dioxide driven climate change, global but also local inequality with large differences in access to basic needs and medical care, and a recent pandemic. Climate change for instance calls for more sustainable medical care, also in the field of paediatric endocrinology, and also raises ethical questions. Another big challenge is the ever-rising prevalence of obesity, with low- and middle-income countries quickly catching up with high-income countries. Although considerable advances are made with respect to medical treatment these are not automatically available for large groups of affected individuals.

The programme will, as usual, include Plenary and Symposia lectures by outstanding international speakers, Meet-the-Expert and How Do I… sessions by experienced clinicians who are world leaders in their fields, Controversy and Novel Advances sessions are designed to make us re-evaluate the way we think and work. Free Communications will allow both experienced colleagues and their younger trainees the opportunity to present their work in oral sessions, and there will be ample opportunities for further presentations and discussion in the poster sessions, which will include both physical and electronic posters.

The Meeting will be held in “World Forum”, an iconic international event venue located between the beach and the city center in the city of Peace and Justice.

We look forward to warmly welcoming you to The Netherlands, to actively participate in a Meeting that will be rich in both basic and clinical science, and that will allow delegates from around the world to present and discuss their latest findings taking inspiration from the history and the beauty of The Hague.
