• 15th Central European Meeting

Looking back at Budapest

The longest-running annual meeting organised by the Regional Office, aims to provide an update of the latest trends, developments and urological challenges in Central Europe.

A successful 15th CEM!

The 15th Central European Meeting (CEM) held from October 2 to 4 in Budapest, Hungary, gathered more than 350 participants and attracted abstract submissions from 25 countries in the region and as far as the Middle East, Central and Eastern Asia.

We are thankful to all speakers, faculty members, training tutors, participants and exhibitors who made the CEM a highly regarded meeting in the past 15 years and an effective platform for innovative research and clinical work.

The CEM’s  comprehensive and insightful scientific programme triggers dynamic discussions and critical debate, thanks to our expert lecturers and local organisers. In future meetings, we intend not only to maintain the quality of the programme but also ensure that young urologists in Central Europe can find opportunities and educational support in CEM and other meetings of the EAU Regional Office.

With your help and support CEM will continue to be an open forum for scientific discussion that will highlight new developments and prospects in European urology.

Join us in Vienna, Austria for next year’s meeting!
