Under the theme of “Transplant Learning Journey”, the TLJ 2018 will serve as a platform for speakers and participants to engage in a variety of presentations, dynamic discussions, networking opportunities, to lead a new platform in the field of transplantation.

The TLJ 2018 brings together 6 ESOT Sections&Committes (EDTCO, ECTTA, ETAHP, ELITA, EKITA, VCA), providing 5 days of continuous education, from Tuesday to Saturday. Education activities will be accredited.
