Reflections from the ESE President: A Remarkable ECE 2024 in Stockholm

As I reflect on the recent European Congress of Endocrinology (ECE) 2024, held from 11-14 May in the vibrant city of Stockholm, I am filled with a profound sense of pride and gratitude. This year’s Congress was a resounding success, attracting over 3400 participants both physically and online, and creating an amazing atmosphere. The wonderful weather in Stockholm seemed to mirror the energy from the Congress!

The scientific calibre of this year's Congress was truly outstanding, and we were privileged to listen and interact with key opinion leaders from around the world as they presented their latest research and insights. The quality of the science was remarkable, with over 2000 abstracts submitted in addition to the invited lecturers.

ECE 2024 was a diverse and inclusive event, reflecting the broad spectrum of our attendees. Clinicians, clinician scientists, researchers, nurses, patient advocacy groups, and allied health professionals all came together to share knowledge, foster collaborations, and advance the field of endocrinology. This combination of perspectives added depth to the discussions and highlighted the importance of a multidisciplinary approach to endocrine health. A heartfelt congratulations to all our award winners whose exceptional work was recognized during the Congress. Your achievements inspire us all and set a high standard for excellence in our field.

Looking ahead, I am excited to announce that our next Congress will be a Joint Congress of the European Society for Paediatric Endocrinology and ESE, taking place in Copenhagen from 10-13 May 2025. The theme, "Connecting Endocrinology Across the Life Course," promises to bring a unique and comprehensive perspective on endocrine health from infancy to adulthood. I anticipate another exceptional event and look forward to seeing everyone there.

In closing, I want to express my gratitude to everyone who contributed to the success of ECE 2024 – in particular the Programme Organising Committee, led by Cynthia Andoniadou, the Local Organising Committee led by Charlotte Höybye, the faculty, our own ESE Team and the Congress organisers Bioscientifica.

And finally, to our ECE delegates and all our ESE Members (old and new!) - your passion, dedication, and engagement are the core of our society. Together, we are advancing the frontiers of endocrinology and making a lasting impact on health and well-being.

With warmest wishes,

Jérôme Bertherat
President, European Society of Endocrinology
