SYSCID on a visit to Spain – 25th UEG Week

Living up to its motto: advancing science – linking people, this year’s  United European Gastroenterology  Week - short UEG Week, united close to 13,000 participants (onsite and online) coming from 118 countries.  From all over the world practitioners, top scientists and everyone invested in digestive health travelled to Barcelona to celebrate the 25th anniversary edition of this renowned meeting from October 28th – November 1st 2018.

With such an event taking place in the heart of Europe, the SYSCID team was naturally not far. As part of a special symposium dedicated to EU funding, the project was presented as a role model in digestive health research. SYSCID coordinator Philip Rosenstiel shared his experience in leading a Horizon 2020 research consortium and hopefully inspired others to follow.
