Be Green with EDTNA/ERCA – Green Excellence in Dialysis

EDTNA/ERCA is happy to present a new green strategy. For several years the Association has fulfilled its task of high-quality service principles with its mission and vision while maintaining a sustainable and responsible approach. The focus of the Association is Green Excellence in Dialysis strategy, which will include various educational activities supporting the incorporation of environmentally friendly practices in renal care delivery. Our main goal for 2020-2021 is to integrate awareness and adoption of sustainable as well as environmentally friendly procedures in  EDTNA/ERCA activities.

In spite of the fact that the EDTNA/ERCA Conference is postponed until 2021, we would like to give you a chance to contribute more to the Green Excellence in Dialysis topic and share your ideas and experience in this area. Therefore, we will intentionally keep the topic Sustainability and Green approach open and you can submit your abstracts for this topic. The excepted abstracts will be presented during the Green Excellence in Dialysis Webinar, that EDTNA/ERCA will organize in November 2020.

Please submit your abstract!


Abstract submission is open only for the Green Excellence in Dialysis Webinar. The topic of abstract should be related to Sustainability and Green approach. Other topics will not be accepted!
