Education and teaching are major goals at ENETS. Thanks to the involvement of ENETS education board and pharma partnerships, ENETS has implemented a programme of webinars (90 minutes) and podcasts (10 minutes) with the objective to check progress on most moving fields of NEN management. State-of-the art and unmet needs will be highlighted. We expect fruitful and numerous discussions and hope this programme will help encourage better care and research for our patients.

ENETS Next Webinar "ABC in NEN" on 27 January 2021

The ENETS Education Board is delighted to offer a webinar "ABC in NEN”.

When: Wednesday, 27 January 2021

Time: 18:00 – 19:30 Central European Time (CET)

Registration is not necessary and the webinar is free of charge


Dear colleagues and friends,

Welcome to the "exciting and adventurous" world of neuroendocrine neoplasms (NEN)!

These clinical entities are not as rare as it was previously thought, and we are sure that you have started seeing them more frequently in your daily practice. Therefore, we feel that some basic knowledge on how to characterise a neuroendocrine neoplasm and how to arrange a proper diagnostic work-up in those patients could be very useful.

A panel of experts from multiple disciplines will deliver short presentations and there will be a panel discussion including clinical cases as well.

We look forward to welcoming you online!
