Biennial European Spring School on the Science and Practice of Venous Thromboembolism

Centre for Thrombosis and Haemostasis, University of Mainz, Germany

Venous   thromboembolism   (VTE)   is   the   third   most   frequent cardiovascular  disease.  It  has  an  annual  incidence  of  over  100 cases  per  100,000  population  and  is  responsible  for  approximately 12% of all deaths in European countries each year.

The  purpose of the European VTE Spring School is to provide interested early career scientists and physicians across a broad spectrum of medical disciplines with a comprehensive overview of what is, at present, the state of the art in the rapidly evolving science and practice of venous thromboembolism.



The Spring School is organised every two yearby the Centre for Thrombosis and Haemostasis (CTH), University Medical Centre Mainz, Germany, in collaboration with the Leiden University Medical Centre (LUMC), The Netherlands, and with the Democritus University of Thrace, Sithonia peninsula in Chalkidiki, Northern Greece, as the local host.

The participants have the opportunity to benefit from interactive seminars and workshops moderated by renowned European experts and leaders in the  field.

Last but not least, the Spring School  offers  a  unique  opportunity  for  networking,  and  for discussing future areas of research and collaboration projects.

The First European VTE Spring School took place from 6 to 13 May 2013

The Second European VTE Spring School took place from 4 to 10 May 2015

The Third European VTE Spring School will be held from 9 to 14 May 2017
