Dear Y-ECCO Enthusiasts!

Can you believe that it’s been only four months since the last ECCO Congress? I bet that many of you are already knee-deep in exciting research for ECCO 2025 in Berlin, so mark your calendars and keep an eye open for the abstract submission deadline. You can’t miss that, as we want to see your top-notch research! Maybe you are the next Y-ECCO Best Abstract awardee!

Here's the scoop: for the Berlin ECCO 2025 Congress, we are reformatting into the Y-ECCO Science Workshop, replacing the Basic Science Workshop. Don’t be afraid – we are still eager to hear from our stellar young scientists, whether you’re diving into basic science or making waves in translational research. In addition, we are calling all clinical Y-ECCO Members: this is your chance to shine, too! Let’s bridge the gap between clinicians and scientists, and create some magic together: the Y-ECCO Science Workshop is gearing up to be a hotspot for cross-disciplinary collaboration and knowledge sharing. Get ready for some serious inspiration and networking opportunities!

In the spirit of inclusivity and global connection, Y-ECCO is going digital. Download the ECCO App and join the ECCO Chat to connect with your peers worldwide. Plus, get ready for ECCO Podcasts to spice up your gym and running activities and enrich your scientific journey while sporting!

While you’re catching up on the latest Literature Review and checking out our Interview Corner with Fernando Magro, ECCO’s President-Elect, keep your eyes peeled for more details on the upcoming Y-ECCO Science Workshop and Mentorship Forum in 2025.

We’ll be back with more after the summer break!

Let’s REACH together!
