• 14th Meeting of the EAU Section of Oncological Urology

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

On behalf of the ESOU Board we would like to thank you for attending the 14th Meeting of the European Section of Oncological Urology (ESOU17) which took place in Barcelona, Spain from 20-22 January 2017.

We can look back on a meeting that strengthened the onco-urology global community and gave the participant the opportunity to connect, exchange new ideas and strategies in the development of knowledge, innovation and improved patient care in onco-urology.

You can read reports and interviews on how the meeting unfolded, or take a look at some photographic impressions from the congress floors. If you attended, don’t forget to download your Certificate of Attendance. All scientific content from the meeting can soon be found in UROsource. Both can be unlocked with your badge barcode.

Thank you again for attending, and we hope to see you in Amsterdam next year for ESOU18!
