Call for participation

On behalf of the ESGE guidelines committee and the leaders of the following guidelines, I would like to thank all the individual members who replied to the call for participation launched in April 2019.

The quality of applications was very high and the selection was not easy for the guideline leaders. A scoring system based on the following criteria was used to evaluate the applications: Experience, scientific level, cv, publications, gender, age and country. Great care was given to ensure that a fair balance was achieved and selected candidates were chosen not only to suit but to present a unique addition to the guideline’s group. The selection for each guideline was also coordinated to ensure that there was a fair diversity in represented countries.

ESGE would like to congratulate the selected candidates. We wish you a good and inspiring guideline journey!
