Centres of Special Interest

The ESE Centres of Special Interest database primarily provides information on endocrine centres engaged with research, education and healthcare across Europe. 


As a centre represented on the Centres of Special Interest database you will receive the following benefits:

  • Increased visibility on the European map of Endocrinology, gaining local and/or international recognition
  • Increased clinical communication between neighbouring or regional Centers of Special Interest  
  • The opportunity for the exchange of young career or established endocrinologists, ultimately benefitting improved and/or more standardized clinical care for the patient with complex endocrine disorders.
  • The opportunity to join clinical collaborative efforts (eg epidemiological studies, registries, clinical studies) that are being initiated by partners of ESE 
  • Offering ESE educational events to their staff 
  • Benefitting from a ‘best practice sharing’ attitude in all matters that are important to an institution.
