ESCV – ENPEN WORKSHOP 2024
The European Society for Clinical Virology and European Non-Polio Enterovirus Network (ENPEN) are co-organising a 2-day Workshop on ENPEN-ESCV workshop on Non-Polio Enteroviruses in Europe, scheduled for 23-24 May 2024, on the island of Corfu, Greece.
The Scientific Committee has prepared an inspiring and interactive program for this Workshop, covering enterovirus diagnosis, treatment and surveillance in Europe. Workshop will not only present the status of current enterovirus surveillance in Europe but also focus on identifying the future needs and opportunities to develop this surveillance further. We will also discuss the current and future option antiviral treatment of enterovirus infections, including the planning how to establish treatment database to capture data on antivirals used to treat more severe enterovirus infections. Finally, we will also cover the seroprevalence studies and advances in genomics methods used for enterovirus typing. We do welcome abstract submissions for short oral presentations on any of these topic areas!
The announcement and provisional programme can be found linked below.

ESCV is offering a maximum of 50 travel grants to include:
– Registration fee
– 2 nights accommodation
– Coffee breaks and light lunches during the workshop
– Corfu Tour & Traditional Corfiot Dinner
A special rate applies for the whole package, thus leaving a maximum of €380 available to each awardee for travel expenses. Costs exceeding this amount must be covered by each awardee.
As an ESCV member, you can apply for one of the above travel grants to cover part or all of your meeting attendance expenses, using the travel-grant-application-form.
A limited number of places are also offered to ESCV members to attend using their own funding. To apply, please use the same application form and indicate “own funding”
Please indicate clearly in the form whether you are applying for a travel grant, using your own funding, or wish to be considered for both options (that means that if you do not receive a travel grant, you would still be interested in attending using your own funding).
If you are not an ESCV member yet, you must apply for ESCV membership before your application can be considered by visiting our website (annual fee €40).
Completed forms must be returned by Wednesday, 24th January 2024. Successful applicants for a travel grant will be notified by February 20th, 2024. Please address any queries to the above email.
