Dear Sir / Madam, dear colleagues,
I am pleased to invite you to the EATB 2016 which takes place in Hannover from the 24th - 25th November 2016. Hannover is a modern town which offers one of the best universities in Germany with the Hannover Medical School (abbreviated MHH in German for Medizinische Hochschule Hannover), holding a prominent position especially in the field of transplant medicine of organs and tissue. Furthermore, Hannover represents the cradle of the royal house of England, dating back to King George I Louis.
We are planning to hold the annual EATB congress in the recently rebuilt Herrenhausen castle which is surrounded by the Herrenhausen Gardens, the most significant baroque gardens in Europe. The historical ambience of the castle, the natural surroundings together with state-of-the-art event technology therefore provide a charming congress location.
As decided at the General Assembly 2014, the annual congress is intended to be reduced to two days. The workshops will form an integral part of the congress in order to bring a specific added value, especially to the daily work of the tissue bank staff.
To ensure that the aspects of exchange in our small community are not neglected we scheduled the Welcome Reception for the evening before the congress on the 23rd November 2016. Everyone who will be arriving on the 23rd November already is warmly welcome to participate in this event!
