Industry Sponsored Annual Meeting Travel Grants

The MedTech Europe Ethical charter came into force on 1st January, 2018 making direct sponsorship of Health Care Professionals (HCPs) by MedTech member companies prohibited.  As a result, these companies channel their support through trusted partners such as the ESVS Society,  Health Care Organisations (HCOs: i.e. hospitals, clinics, medical institutions) or the PCO (Professional Congress Organiser).  Moreover, Congrex Switzerland, the PCO of the ESVS Annual Meeting in Hamburg, is a MedTech Europe Trusted Partner and is committed to complying with MedTech Europe’s ethical standards.

The ESVS offered in 2019 over 30 Industry Sponsored Annual Meeting Grants to support registration, travel and accommodation expenses of European Vascular Surgery Professionals to attend the 33rd ESVS Annual Meeting in Hamburg. The ESVS acknowledges the support of the below partner companies.

This year for our ESVS month 2020, over 60 Industry Sponsored Grants will be offered to our members, thanks to the support of Medtronic.
