It is our great pleasure to invite you to participate in the XXXIV Annual Meeting of the European Eye Bank Association (EEBA) which will take place in Aachen Germany from Thursday 2 March to Saturday 4 March 2023.

By looking closely at achievements of the past, challenges of the present and those of the future the conference is an excellent opportunity to enhance knowledge of the multidimensional activity of eye banking – and to close the circle, it is a chance to get information on the latest developments in this field.

For that the scientific program will focus on current state of art of corneal storage but also on associated factors which strongly impact eye banks, such as legal requirements, strategic management structures including sustainability and knowledge transfer.

The conference aims at bringing together the eye banking community throughout Europe and beyond. Our ambition and claim is to offer also a personal and professional meeting – to get in contact with experts in the field of eye banking, to meet old and hopefully new collaborators and friends – all these are characteristics of the spirit of the European Eye Bank Association.

The XXXIV Annual Meeting of the European Eye Bank Association will be held in the CT² - Center for Teaching and Training of the Faculty of Medicine at RWTH - which is unique in the field of medical education and training across Europe. The modern building offers a training center, a demonstration operation room, a multi-functional hall for up to 400 people, learning lounges as well as seminar and office spaces.

Situated close to the University Hospital the CT² is regarded as a symbolic "Gate to Campus Melaten".

Since 2009, six start-up clusters with numerous centers such as Bio-Medical Engineering, Sustainable Energy, Photonics, Production Engineering, Heavy-Duty Drives and Smart Logistics have been developed there – demonstrating an outstanding area where academia and industry conduct joint research.

We look forward to inspiring, stimulating and fruitful discussions in the friendly and vibrant atmosphere of our modern future-oriented university campus in our beautiful historic city of Aachen.

Further information will be provided soon.

See you in Aachen!

Kindest regards
