An EPC to remember

The EPC in Bergen is now over and we hope all delegates return home with new scientific insights, new research ideas and new friends. The pancreatic world is small but we are strong and we need to work together

From a YOUPPIE point of view the meeting was a success. We organized a pre-meeting workshop together with the Hungarian Pancreatic Study Group were multiple collaborative projects involving young pancreatologists were presented. On Thursday we had the inaugural breakfast with the mentor, Marco del Chiaro. We were happy to have so many participants and we hope you all enjoyed the intimate atmosphere and the fruitful discussion. On Friday we were very proud to give the first YOUPPIE award to Giuseppe Malleo and listen to his awardee talk.
