Invitation to collaborate with ECCO

Dear Sir/Madam,

Thank you for your interest in ECCO. This homepage outlines our rapidly growing organisation, which aims to optimise care for patients suffering from Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD). We hope that our activities, initiatives and services appeal to you in a way in that you will consider joining forces with us and becoming or continuing to be one of our Corporate Partners.

In the past decade, ECCO has become the leading European organisation for IBD and is now the largest forum in the world for IBD  specialists. All our 35 Member Countries are represented in the core bodies that make up ECCO: The Council of National Representatives and the 11 operational ECCO Committees. In addition, ECCO is linked with most of the National IBD Societies and study groups within Europe, extending collaboration beyond Europe into Asia, Asia-Pacific, South Africa, North America, Latin America and the Middle East.

Our central point of interest is the well-being of the patient with IBD. For this purpose we organise high quality educational programmes for those who care for them: the clinicians (gastroenterologists, paediatricians, surgeons), nurses, research fellows and students. This is done in a direct way during our Annual Congress and regional ECCO Educational Workshops; and indirectly through our extended e-CCO Learning platform and through the development of internationally recognised ECCO Guidelines. In addition, we seek to innovate IBD therapeutics by finding answers through Scientific Workshops and by promoting research through ECCO Fellowships, Grants and Travel Awards. There will be new ECCO Guidelines, new Topical Reviews, ECCO Position Statements and the ECCO Talking Global IBD for interaction across the world of IBD.

With all its activities, ECCO aspires to represent the highest possible level of quality, together with complete impartiality. ECCO realises that its ambitious plans and vision require the valuable support of the biomedical industry. We therefore strive to develop a continuing and fruitful relationship as equal partners.

To this end, ECCO has put together this informative online brochure for our current and potential Corporate Members. The brochure provides important details on the business relationship between ECCO and Industry. It explains the advantages of becoming a Corporate Partner and describes potential sponsorship activities for future cooperation.
If you are interested in getting involved with ECCO, please contact us personally or via the ECCO Office at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view initiate further discussion.

We thank you for your valued and continuing support!

Yours sincerely,

Laurent Peyrin-Biroulet
President of ECCO 2020-2022
