Scientific Summits meeting
29 April 2017

Location: KBC Arteveldetoren

Following the increasing success of the events in 2016, we are very pleased to announce next Scientific Summits symposium on Saturday 29th of April 2017.

Again, we are working in direct partnership with the BVU (Belgische Vereniging voor Urologie), BRAVO (Belgian Radiotherapy Awareness & Visibility Organization) and ESRU (European Society of Residents in Urology).

Our multidisciplinary symposium will emphasize even more on interactivity with video-based learning sessions and case discussions, allowing participants to experience ground-breaking techniques and treatments and learn directly from national and international key opinion leaders. Scientific Summits once again welcomes the best experts in their particular domain.

We look forward to welcome you all on Saturday 29 April 2017!
