More than 4,000 delegates from around the world are expected to descend on Gothenburg next week for the European Stroke Organisation Conference (ESOC).

Now in its fourth year, this year’s conference will feature a record number of 1,588 abstracts highlighting groundbreaking scientific research and the latest advances in patient care.

The Action Plan for Stroke in Europe 2018-2030 will also be officially launched at the event. This collaborative initiative aims to define the priorities for stroke care and research across Europe over the next decade, and provide guidance for European and national plans encompassing the chain of care from primary prevention to rehabilitation and life after stroke.

This year, the European Stroke Organisation is also partnering with the India Stroke Association and convening a Europe-India Stroke Session where common strategies and regional differences will be discussed.

“ESOC has grown exponentially since the inaugural meeting in 2015 which is testimony to the value this meeting offers not only the European community but global stroke community,” said ESO President Prof Valeria Caso, University of Perugia, Italy. 

The conference takes place from May 16th to 18th.
