ESE Council of Affiliated Societies
The European Society of Endocrinology Council of Affiliated Societies (ECAS) aims to raise the profile of European endocrinology through greater collaboration between the European Society of Endocrinology and the national endocrine societies of Europe.
ECAS provides a forum for discussions between the European Society of Endocrinology and its National Affiliated Societies about future projects, an opportunity for them to raise concerns and issues faced by their members and for the National Affiliated Societies to work together with the European Society of Endocrinology for the benefit of endocrinologists throughout Europe.
All National Affiliated Societies who are members of the European Society of Endocrinology are automatically members of ECAS. Affiliated Society Membership is open to national endocrine societies in Europe and in countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea, as well as pan-European and international sub-specialist endocrine societies.
