Hybrid Event, 8 - 9 March 2022, in Barcelona, Spain

World NET Forum in 2022

ENETS has worked together with our partner NET societies around the world (incl. NANETS, APNETS, COMMNETS, CSNET, CNETS, JNETS, Argentum, NET Initiatives in South America, and INCA) on a first-class scientific programme aimed at bringing the leading scientists in the field of neuroendocrine neoplasms together to connect and inspire clinicians and scientists at the cutting edge of NET research.

Please look at the preliminary programme below.
