Dear ESP member
Dear Colleague,

Thank you for going virtual with us again.

Another 3 eventful pathology days have come to an end, filled with 96 live sessions. 2,718 participants from 94 countries went virtual with us.

Our exhibitors would love to welcome you at their booths even after the congress. The virtual exhibition will be open until 12 September 2021.

The Virtual ECP was accredited with 18 European CME credits.
You can request your certificates online. To obtain credits, the ESP requires feedback on its educational activities. Therefore, we kindly ask the delegates to complete an evaluation form when claiming their certificates. Kindly note, that certificates may only be issued from 1 September until 30 November 2021.

All scientific sessions and industry symposia will be available for 3 months via the congress website. So, if you missed sessions, no worries, you have plenty of time left to browse through all content.

Delegates who need a presentation certificate are kindly requested to claim it by sending an email including presentation codes (e.g. PS-01-001) to

We are now looking forward to welcoming you at next year’s ECP in Basel, Switzerland hopefully face to face.
