Welcome Letter

Dear Colleagues,

It is our great pleasure to welcome you to 30th Annual Meeting of the European Society of Paediatric and Neonatal Intensive Care (ESPNIC), Caring Without Borders, in the beautiful city of Salzburg.

We are extremely grateful for all the help from the local and international organising committees, the city of Salzburg, our numerous industry sponsors and the conference organisers, Kenes, in putting together what promises to be another stimulating and educating Meeting.

Our upcoming Meeting offers a platform where knowledge and experience can be shared with numerous experts in neonatal and paediatric intensive care and related fields, from Europe and around the world.

The Meeting provides the opportunity to discuss your specialty at a national and international level, through exchanging ideas and knowledge with colleagues from different countries and different settings, networking with other professionals in a multidisciplinary setting and participating in educational and social events.

For all members of our society, and for all those caring for babies, children and young adults, the welfare of our patients is central to everything we do. We also have a duty to ensure that we keep up to date with latest developments in our fields; to educate others who are involved in the care that we give; and to provide the highest standard of care to the children and their families.

We hope that you enjoy this meeting and it fulfils these goals.
