Highlights from ECE 2022
Read our roundup of the top highlights from the European Congress of Endocrinology, held in Milan, Italy on 21-24 May.
The Congress brought over 4000 endocrinologists, from more than 100 countries together to learn, share and celebrate all things endocrinology.
We also helped to put hormones on the map by launching the world's first European Hormone Day, which saw many delegates visit the dedicated stand to find out more and to take photos in the selfie frames. Twitter was very active, with nearly 1200 tweets reaching 4.33million impressions on Monday 23 May alone, as delegates actively posted photos using the hashtags #BecauseHormonesMatter and #EuropeanHormoneDay.
The Milano Declaration was signed by nine policymakers and will pave the way towards positioning hormonal health high on the political agenda. It was also signed by 60 endocrine societies and groups, including patient support groups and specialist societies.
There was also an event to introduce the European Women in Endocrinology (EUWIN) initiative to improve opportunities and diversity for women in European endocrinology and within ESE.
There was plenty to celebrate at the event. In addition to our prestigious Award Lectures:
- Twelve Young Investigator Awards, worth €1000 each, were given to researchers who submitted outstanding abstracts.
- Eight of the best posters on display were given Poster Awards, worth €250 each.
- Cecila Follin was announced as our European Endocrine Nurse Award winner.
- The EYES Clinical Observership Programme (C.O.P.) Awardees and EYES Research Observership Programme (R.O.P.) Awardees were also revealed.
The European Journal of Endocrinology (EJE) announced its inaugural EJE Rising Star Awardees. These individuals were selected by the EJE Editors as showing exceptional promise, achievement and trajectory in establishing themselves as independent leading clinical and translational endocrine researchers, with high potential to serve as future editors of EJE.
