16th ESC Congress – Postponement

On behalf of the Executive Committee and the Secretariat I wish to inform you that the 16th Congress of the ESC due to take place in Dublin from May 13th to 15th 2020 has been postponed until further notice.

Concrete information will follow as soon as possible. Thank you in advance for your patience.

The postponement of the Congress is complex – the Secretariat is working to secure the best outcomes for all interested parties. We will endeavour to keep you up to date on a regular basis as concrete information comes to hand.

Europe is now the epicentre of Covid 19 — it is prudent therefore to postpone the Congress.

The trajectory of the disease is unknown – Most countries are in the process of delaying the spread of the virus – This may have the effect of prolonging the duration of the disease.

It is our sincere hope that the Congress will take place in the last quarter of 2020.
At the earliest opportunity we will let you know of our plans.

Thank you for your understanding – Look after yourself and your loved ones stay safe.

Take care – keep well.

ESC President


The theme of the 16th ESC Congress in Dublin in 2020 is “Let the conversation begin” Cultural and ethnic diversity in a changing world. The ESC, over time, has broadened its membership and geographic spread to reflect the demographics of those who provide and those who avail of our services.

This Congress is an innovative approach to integrating the science and research of reproductive health care with the cultural and ethical mores of a broad based service. The Congress will facilitate and encourage debate on a wide range of subjects from Classical contraceptive topics to Gender fluidity.

We welcome, indeed, encourage everybody to join us in Dublin for an exciting and lively Congress!

Mary Short
Congress & ESC President
