The European Hematology Association’s 21st Congress starts this week in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Hematologists and other industry professionals are in Denmark’s capital city to hear about the latest hematology research, learn more about emerging techniques and treatments, and network with experts from around the globe.

Association: European Hematology Association

Conference: 21st Congress

Venue: Bella Center

Location: Copenhagen, Denmark

The European Hematology Association’s 21st Congress begins with an afternoon opening ceremony on June 10, which will include an address by EHA’s president and an awards presentation. Other conference items worth highlighting:

Gap analysis. Ahead of the meeting, attendees were encouraged to take the Competence Survey. The tool allows them to self-assess their knowledge of the sections of the European Hematology Curriculum. Once completed, answers can be transferred to an attendee’s online CV Passport, where he or she can compare results with the recommended level to easily spot which sessions would help fill a knowledge gap.

Fast pitch. To better promote basic research in hematology, ESA is offering a new format at its congress—the Poster Pitch. During selected simultaneous sessions, five to eight presenters will have one minute to pitch their abstract or poster to session attendees.

On air. A selection of semi-live reports and interviews with leaders in hematology are recorded and broadcast during the congress. Recordings take place every day at EHA Studio in the Center Hall, where attendees can take a seat and join the sessions live. The materials are available on demand for everyone—including nonattendees.
