51ST EDTNA/ERCA INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE
PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE
Dear Colleagues & Friends,

It is with great pleasure and pride that we invite you to join us in Vilnius, Lithuania next year where the 51st EDTNA/ERCA International Conference will take place. The theme of our Conference is “Kidney Care in a challenging world – economic & sustainable implications”.

The theme highlights two main topics: economy and sustainability, which are related, sometimes in conflict. But as healthcare professionals we need to consider them as pivotal.

Our Conference will take place at the Radisson Blu Hotel Lietuva, which is a newly built conference centre located right by the city centre. Thanks to its unique and varied interior it is the ideal venue for organising conferences.

The UNESCO-listed medieval old town of Vilnius is one of Eastern Europe’s biggest and best preserved. Vilnius is a compact and walkable city, filled with urban green spaces and a healthy dose of impressive architecture, tasty eats and all kinds of exciting leisure activities. 46 % of Vilnius is made up of green spaces, so you can definitely expect a breath of fresh air.

Please join us at the 51st EDTNA/ERCA International Conference and experience our Scientific Programme, including Educational Sessions and Workshops. Meet our Industry Partners at the Exhibition, share experiences among each other, and meet old and new friends! We are very much looking forward to welcoming you to Vilnius.
