Welcome to the 14th European Colorectal Congress of St.Gallen


Dear Friends of the ECC St.Gallen, dear Colleagues,

We proudly introduce the 14th European Colorectal Congress of St. Gallen. In a concentrated programme over 3 days.

Unfortunately, 2/3 of our speakers are no longer able to travel to Switzerland due to the corona regulations, and the same applies to the participants.

We will now change the organization, registration and the scientific programme of the ECC to the virtual realisation with live-streaming. We will ensure maximum interactivity and enable a lively exchange between participants, speakers and industry. 
You can imagine how hard this decision is for me, as it is completely contrary to the character of the ECC.
I hope it is the only and last time we have to bite the bullet.

Following key themes will be covered:

A dedicated session on IBD supported by the European Crohn and Colitis Organisation rounds up the programme. 
As usual, a dedicated Masterclass in Colorectal Surgery will be taught on ahead of the Congress. New 2020 is the addition of a second Course in Proctology, which will add to the comprehensive coverage of the meeting.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in the virtually world!
