Dear members, colleagues,

In view of the Covid-19 crisis, we regret to inform you that EDTNA/ERCA has taken the difficult decision to postpone the 49th EDTNA/ERCA International Conference scheduled to take place in Ljubljana, September 12-15, 2020 and reschedule the Conference for September 4-7, 2021.



Dear Colleagues & Friends

It is with great pleasure and pride that we invite you to join us in Ljubljana where our 49th EDTNA/ERCA  International Conference, September 4-7, 2021 will take place. Ljubljana is Slovenia’s capital and largest city and it’s known for its university population and green spaces.

The theme of our Conference is ‘Knowledge, Skills & Commitment – Core Elements to Manage Care’. During the last two International Conferences, 2018 and 2019 our focus has been on ‘Balancing Compassion and Health Technologies’ and the integration of it. Next step is to Manage Care and the implementation of the learnings. Learnings which you get during the Conference participating in our well planned Scientific Programme including Educational Sessions and Workshops.

Our Conference will take place at the Cankar Centre also known as Cankarjev dom or Cankar Hall. Cankarjev dom is the largest Slovenian convention, congress and culture center. The building was designed by the architect Edvard Ravnikar and was built at the southern edge of Republic Square in Ljubljana between 1977 and 1982.

The Conference is a forum for sharing the best research and innovations in practice and helps in initiating and promoting quality renal research and practice around the world. It is a showcase for the latest technology and innovation in the treatment of Chronic Kidney Disease. Meet our Industry Partners at the Exhibition, share experiences amongst each other, meet old friends, and extend your network by meeting new ones as well.

We are very much looking forward to Welcoming you to Ljubljana!
With warm regards,
