Scientific Information

Organising Institutions

The European Society for Paediatric Research (ESPR) has been at the forefront of Paediatric medical care and innovation since 1958.

As one of the oldest and most prolific Paediatric research societies in Europe, the ESPR co-organises annual conferences, supports investigators with research grants, runs a mentoring programme and disseminates cutting-edge findings through its journal Pediatric Research, amongst others. It currently has nine sections representing different Paediatric sub-specialties.

Together with the European Board of Neonatology (EBN), the ESPR’s educational branch, the society organises hands-on pre-congress courses, workshops, as well as summer and winter schools. These underpin key areas of practice within the European Curriculum and Syllabus for Training in Neonatology. In addition, through the Neonatal Online Training and Education Programme (NOTE), a joint venture with the University of Southampton, the ESPR offers online postgraduate neonatal education to doctors and advanced neonatal nurse practitioners.

Based on its heritage and proudly looking back at a long list of achievements, the ESPR continues to promote scientific excellence and collaboration between different Paediatric specialities. This the ESPR does from ‘bench to bedside’ – meaning it fosters research to improve patient treatment and advance clinical practice.

Our mission: Developing and applying research to improve newborn and child health.

The European Foundation for the Care of Newborn Infants (EFCNI) is the first pan-European organisation and network to represent the interests of preterm and newborn infants and their families. It brings together parents, healthcare experts from different disciplines, and scientists with the common goal of improving long-term health of preterm and newborn children. EFCNI’s vision is to ensure the best start in life for every baby.

The mission of UENPS is to improve healthcare in the neonatal and perinatal medicine in the European countries. Main goals of UENPS are to improve quality in perinatal and neonatal care by integrating, coordinating and adding national and scientific societies’ efforts, to promote the knowledge of the perinatal indicators and to develop recommendations, guidelines, training of the healthcare providers and any other tool to achieve the best healthcare for every newborn and surveillance of neonatal rights wherever they are born.
Following on UENPS’ mission, a division named “UENPS Hall of Knowledge” has been established in 2019. Its aim is to gather all experiences and cultural activities developed throughout the years and offer a wider educational approach to the hot topics of neonatology.
