One of Eurotransplant’s goals is to further improve the results of transplantation through scientific research and through dissemination of the outcomes.
Eurotransplant facilitates research by gathering data on donors, recipients, transplants and the outcome of transplantation. This information is spread in various ways amongst the scientific and medical community.
Statistical data are published on Eurotransplant’s website, in Newsletters and Annual Reports. Regularly the biostatisticians of Eurotransplant assist scientists who have special requests for biostatistical data.
Staff members of Eurotransplant frequently give presentations and lectures. At national and international scientific meetings and conferences they discuss various aspects of organ transplantation and the allocation of organs.
Twice a year Eurotransplant organizes a Meeting for the transplant community from within and outside the Eurotransplant member states. Combining meetings of the Assembly, the Board and the advisory committees with a scientific program, one of the purposes of these meetings is to disseminate the outcomes of recent research.
