Current Congress


Dear colleagues, friends and participants,

It is our pleasure and privilege to invite you to join the 11th ESO Karolinska Stroke Update Conference which will be held in Stockholm, Sweden from 13-15 November 2016. This meeting marks our 20th anniversary, since the first one was held in Stockholm in 1996. Since 2014, this is a joint project for ESO and Karolinska.

The European Stroke Organisation (ESO) is a pan-European society of stroke researchers and physicians, national and regional stroke societies and lay organisations that was founded in December 2007.

The aim of the ESO is to reduce the incidence and impact of stroke by changing the ways that stroke is viewed and treated. This can only be achieved by professional and public education, and by making institutional changes. The ESO provides assistance in achieving this goal and in harmonising stroke management across the whole of Europe.

The aim of the Conference, since its start, is to provide updates on recent stroke therapy research and to give an opportunity to discuss how these results may be implemented into clinical routine. It is now also an opportunity for participants to discuss updates of ESO stroke guidelines and inspire to new guidelines when motivated.

Stockholm is the capital of Sweden and the most populous city in the Nordic region. Founded in 1252, the city is spread across 14 islands. Stockholm is the cultural, media, political, and economic centre of Sweden. The Stockholm region is among the top 10 regions in Europe by GDP per capita. It is an important global city and home to some of Europe's top ranking universities, such as the Karolinska Institute and KTH Royal Institute of Technology.

Conference participants will have the chance to benefit from scientific exchange during either the formal activities or the more relaxed networking meetings with colleagues.

We hope you will enjoy the conference and are looking forward to welcoming you in Stockholm!
