The Education Committee (EC) of the European Society for Organ Transplantation (ESOT) is a formally established committee of ESOT aiming to advance transplant education in Europe for all disciplines related to the field of transplantation.
The Basic Science Committee promotes scientific issues and transplantation research within ESOT. An active basic science community and an efficient translation of innovation into the clinic are crucial for the future of transplantation medicine.
The European Transplant Allied Healthcare Professionals (ETAHP) reaches out to allied healthcare professionals throughout Europe in order to ensure the best care possible for all transplant patients, with the aim to optimize patient outcomes.
The Young Professionals in Transplantation (YPT) is the Network for Junior Transplant professionals of ESOT, representing all young transplant clinicians and scientists who are beginning a career in transplantation and organ donation.
The mission of ECTORS is to provide a forum for discussing and stimulating novel developments in the fields of cellular therapies in organ transplantation, organ regeneration and generation of new organs from stem cells and biomaterials.
ECTTA is the forum for experience exchange on treatment of patients with end-stage heart and lung failure. Our aim is to improve outcomes for the patients.
EDTCO aims to support health care professionals to provide clinically effective programmes on organ and tissue donation, procurement and transplantation.
EKITA is the Organ Expert Section of ESOT on kidney transplantation in Europe, providing a forum for kidney transplantation professionals to exchange scientific information and views aimed at providing the best service to European patients .
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.
ELPAT is a European platform that brings continuity and progress in European research and dialogue on "Ethical, Legal and Psychosocial Aspects of organ Transplantation". ELPAT currently consists of over 160 experts from more than 25 European countries.
EPITA is established to provide a forum for those working in the field of pancreas and islet of Langerhans transplantation or any other alternative form of beta cell replacement in Europe, to exchange scientific information and views related primarily to providing the best service for patients in Europe requiring pancreas or islet transplantation.
VCA has opened a new era in the field of transplantation, reconstructive and restorative surgery. This Section brings together 10 representatives of major European teams at the forefront in this field.
After careful consideration, and given the current circumstances, the ESOT Executive Committee has decided to hold TLJ 2.0 entirely online, with the dates of the event remaining the same, 15-17 November 2020.
The ESOT Executive Committee believes this is the most appropriate way to allow for an active participation of the community in Europe (and beyond) while ensuring everyone’s safety, especially considering the difficulty in predicting how the COVID-19 pandemic will evolve in the fall. As this decision does not substantially affect the scientific programme or the educational objectives of TLJ 2.0, we are committed to making the necessary adjustments that allow for a smooth transition to the online format, while fully preserving the spirit and the substance of the event.
TLJ 2.0 is particularly well suited to be a fully online event as it was always designed to promote interaction and discussion within the transplantation community well beyond a face-to-face event. While we look forward to meeting in person soon, TLJ 2.0 enables us to continue growing our knowledge and developing collaborations on the most advanced topics in transplantation.
We hope you will join our unique Transplantation Learning Journey 2.0 Online Experience. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with the ESOT Team if you have any questions or concerns via email@example.com.
The target audience for TLJ 2.0 includes all fields involved in health care and research with an affiliation in transplantation.
This includes but is not limited to:
Topics of discussion have been selected based on an extensive consultation process among ESOT’s Sections & Committees. These topics are the focus of the workstreams, managed by leaders in the field, who will connect with peers and mentors. It is our goal to build an expanded network, trigger new research, collaboration, exchange and discussion.
The discussion starts in the workstreams and the outcomes are shared and presented at TLJ 2.0.
ESOT is building on the strengths of the TLJ 2018 experience (cross-fertilisation among different topic and field experts) to launch a completely new project, TLJ 2.0.
The concept of TLJ is LEARNING: learning never stops and emerging stars, expert professionals and opinion leaders need to keep learning to stay on top of their discipline. TLJ 2.0 provides value and produces concrete outcomes for all three of these types of transplantation professionals.
The meeting has a completely new structure now, that leads up to and beyond the face-to-face experience by introducing preparatory pre-meeting work to support consensus workgroups, and pre and post-meeting interaction and discussion among all participants.
Led by ESOT Sections, the TLJ 2.0 programme targets all audiences by including consensus workgroups, small mentoring sessions and keynote lectures, all connected seamlessly by ESOT’s innovative approach to meetings.
Workgroups will develop a series of consensus papers aimed for publications in Transplant International and further dissemination and interaction will be achieved by interactive materials hosted on Transplant Live, the ESOT e-learning platform.
Patients are welcome to attend and will be invited to contribute.
TLJ 2.0 is a comprehensive experience designed to promote discussion before and after the meeting.
Registrations to this event are closed.
All preparatory activities for TLJ 2.0 are free of charge and available on the ESOT Youtube Channel.
Please consult our website and register to our newsletter to stay updated with the list of future TLJ activities.
