With the Y-ECCO Basic Science Workshop, Y-ECCO aims to give basic science, and young clinicians doing basic science or full-time researchers, a more visible platform within ECCO and the ECCO Congress. We also want to promote scientific exchange and networking among (young) basic scientists. Each edition of the workshop features two top-notch speakers and experts in their field who give state of the art overviews on the session topics and are then invited to join the discussions following oral abstract presentations by Y-ECCO Members. The two sessions of this year’s workshop focussed on “In vivo perils in IBD” and “Ex vivo promises in IBD”.

The 3rd Histopathologists of ECCO (H-ECCO) Masterclass took place in Vienna on February 15–16, 2018.

Since its formation in 2016, the Histology Working Group of ECCO (H-ECCO) has organised a successful annual educational Masterclass. The 3rd H-ECCO Masterclass at the 2018 ECCO Congress in Vienna ran on Thursday afternoon and Friday morning. It coincided with an important event: The official conversion of the H-ECCO Working Group to a full committee on the Thursday evening.  Attendance at the Masterclass was good (over 70 registrants) and the audience comprised a mixture of histopathologists and gastroenterologists from Europe and further afield.

The 13th Congress of ECCO is behind us: So many thoughts, and important new targets for research into therapy, diagnosis and management. Everything in one place, in wonderful Vienna.

From the point of view of the paediatrician, the Congress offered insights into numerous new predictive tools. It is not surprising that research is heading in this direction, for ultimately “to know” is halfway towards “to treat”. Looking more closely at this topic: What can we predict and by what means can we predict it?

The S-ECCO IBD Masterclass is the annual scientific forum for professional discussions on surgical aspects of the treatment of patients with IBD, emphasising the multidisciplinary approach in these patients. Each year, this unique meeting devoted to IBD surgery is attracting an increasing number of surgeons from around the globe owing to the high-quality scientific content and the opportunity for interchange of knowledge and ideas between surgeons and other professionals responsible for the care of IBD patients. 180 surgeons, gastroenterologists and other professionals from 40 countries registered for the Masterclass this year, which focused on cutting-edge IBD surgery.
