Welcome message

Dear colleagues, collaborators and friends,

It is my pleasure to invite you to participate in the 23rd European Association for Vision and Eye Research (EVER) Congress, which will take place at the Acropolis Centre of Nice, September 24-26th 2020.
EVER is a unique European Ophthalmology Congress providing the newest knowledge of clinical and translational ophthalmology in a close collaboration with industry partners.

Our strategy aims for the highest level of science and the best possible support for our young colleagues. We are looking forward to seeing you, collaborators and friends, in the rapid-fire talks, poster sessions, and courses and in the special interest symposium.

EVER is continuously developing its community, which looks towards the future with bright expectations. Recently, we were lucky to find a very active and experienced OIC secretary office based in Italy to take care of program flux and your wellness in our successful congress. We are also delighted to welcome the following new EVER board members: Heli Skottman, Franziska Rauscher, Marcela Votruba, Roy Quinlan and Christina Zeitz.

I have participated in the EVER congresses for more than 15 years and EVER has been the best place to get international support for clinical work and translational science as well as open new exciting collaborations. In addition to the scientific program, EVER creates the stage for emotional experiences in a relaxing atmosphere.

Take your time from daily routine and meet old and new friends during the EVER congress.

On behalf of the EVER board members, I warmly invite you to attend the 23rd EVER Congress in Nice and participate in the creation of its cutting edge scientific program.

Professor Kai Kaarniranta, MD, PhD, MSc
EVER President
