The European Association of Urology (EAU) is an association with approx. 8,000 members (European urologists) and a Central Office in The Netherlands. The EAU is the link for more than 16,000 urologists, urologists-in-training and urological scientists.

One of the EAU's activities is the organisation of its annual congress.

The 21st Annual Congress of the EAU will be organised from 5-8 April 2006 in Paris. This is the largest urological congress in Europe and the second largest in the world. We expect well over 8,000 urologists from all over the world to attend.

What can you expect?

An international exchange of high quality scientific information is available to our visitors through scientific sessions, state-of-the-art lectures, educational courses and satellite symposia. The European School of Urology (ESU) offers courses in which all contemporary urological issues are dealt with and the European Society of Uro-Technology (ESUT) offers hands-on training sessions.

Furthermore, a technical exhibition will be held. The newest developments of the pharmaceutical and technical equipment industries are to be exhibited. Delegates of many industries and scientific publishers shall be present for information.
