Partners Symposia

On behalf of the Spanish Society for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (SENPE), we would like to invite you to the 40th ESPEN Congress 2018, which will be held for the 4th time in Spain.

Following the Congresses in Barcelona (1987, 2012) and Madrid (2000), the Spanish Society would like to welcome all ESPEN members again to the city of Madrid.

Madrid is the capital of Spain and one of the main European metropolis. It is a captivating city including some of the most visited art museums in the world and a cultural heritage where history and modernity blend effortlessly together. Its bright sunny weather offers the perfect setting for a walk through the wide green areas in the city or any other leisure activity of your choice. In addition to this, the city´s kind-hearted people are active participants in offering visitors a warm welcome.

With the theme “Nutrition without borders” we want to express our interest to explore new topics in clinical nutrition, in different clinical settings, besides the multidisciplinary and worldwide environment of the Congress.

Working in close collaboration with the ESPEN Committee Members, we have developed an attractive program that aims to continue ESPEN’s effort to improve Nutritional Care and Education. With the occasion of celebrating the 40th anniversary of ESPEN Congress and in order to remember the main achievements of the Society during this long trajectory we will “season” the schedule with some special events.

We are convinced that the program of ESPEN 2018 offers a great opportunity for physicians, dietitians, pharmacists, nutritionists, scientists and nurse involved in the field of nutrition and metabolism to meet and discuss cutting edge science in an informal atmosphere, strengthening old and sparkling new collaborations.

We sincerely hope to meet you in Madrid in 2018!
