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
