The European Liver and Intestine Transplant Association (ELITA), previously known as the European Liver Transplant Association (ELTA), is a section of ESOT. Its membership represents the expertise on liver and intestinal transplantation in Europe.
- To provide a forum for those working in the field of liver and intestinal transplantation to exchange scientific information and views related primarily to providing the best service for patients in Europe requiring liver transplantation. Thus science, training, organ sharing and distribution, co-operative research projects, especially of clinical nature and the European Liver Transplant Registry would be of concern.
- The relationship with national and European government agencies and with the organ exchange organisations would also be the business of the ELITA, which would be the official representative body of liver and intestinal transplantation in Europe.
