The accredited centres form the core of this truly pan European network but the UEMS and NASCE welcome all interested parties to the this annually scientific meetings.
The city of Lund founded more than 1000 years ago, is one of the oldest cities in Scandinavia. This year the University is celebrating its 350th anniversary. Lund is a city of creativity with many high-tech industries and start-ups. Many visitors are attracted by Lund for the combination of the historical surroundings, the University and its city centre with small shops, restaurants and cafés.
The venue for the meeting, “Hypoteksvåningen” (www.hypoteket.se), was situated in a beautiful fin de siècle building in the old part of the city and in convenient walking distance from recommended hotels and from the railway station.
The content of the scientific meeting was a mix of free paper sessions based on original research within the area of medical simulation, and key note addresses. There was also an interesting industry exhibition area for simulation companies.
