Eurotransplant manages the following three core processes: allocation, allocation development and Registry.
Eurotransplant plays a key role in the allocation and distribution of donor organs for transplantation. The allocation system is objective, transparent, repeatable and valid. It is designed to make the best possible match. After removal a donor organ has to be transplanted within a few hours. An impeccably smooth running organization is literally of life saving importance. Therefore the Eurotransplant central office is manned by specially trained staff, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.read more
To continuously update and improve the allocation process Eurotransplant can rely on a network of experts. The allocation process differs per organ on allocation rules and specific details. The fields of expertise within the network relate to the different organs. Eurotransplant is also actively involved in national and international projects.read more
