European Society for Paediatric Research

The European Society for Paediatric Research (ESPR) was founded in 1958 and is one of the oldest European Societies. Since then the ESPR has evolved into the current dynamic and vibrant grouping of researchers into childhood and its associated conditions, with a successful premier Journal and evolving wider responsibilities, aiming at promoting paediatric research in Europe and encouraging collaboration between different specialised fields of paediatrics to maintain paediatrics as a unified, scientifically orientated discipline.

The Society now numbers about 500 members, mostly clinicians caring for children, oriented towards research aimed at improving the health of all children. We encourage young scientists to use our society as a means of developing their network of contacts in their field and we would encourage all paediatric researchers to come to our meetings and to join our society.
