Location: “The Classic Domaine” in Beersel

We are very pleased to announce that the next Scientific Summits symposium will be organized on Friday 8th of June 2018 in the charming place “The Classic Domaine” in Beersel.

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). Please note that the ESRU.be event takes place the next day on Saturday 9th of June at the same location.

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 would like to thank all of you for participating and supporting the Scientific Summits events the last two years. We look forward to welcoming you again this year!
