ESCRS - Host ESCRS Winter Meeting 2026 ;

Request for Expressions of Interest (EOI) for Affiliated Societies to Host ESCRS Winter Meeting 2026


The European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons (ESCRS) was founded in 1991 to promote education and research in the field of implant and refractive surgery and to advance and promote the study and practice of ophthalmology. ESCRS has over 7,500 members from 130 countries worldwide. 

ESCRS Winter Meeting

The ESCRS Winter Meeting is at the forefront of promoting education in the field of cataract and refractive surgery. It has a clear and enthusiastic mission: to nurture a forward-looking and robust scientific community within our field, while enhancing the educational process. Providing high-quality education is a hallmark of ESCRS and we are dedicated to ensuring that knowledge is shared equitably among countries and societies seeking collaboration. Our primary objective is to move away from passive learning, offering an immersive and dynamic learning experience. 

To achieve its goal of sharing knowledge equitably, ESCRS wishes to run its Winter Meeting in collaboration with National Societies which are affiliated to ESCRS and wish to combine their national meeting with an ESCRS Winter Meeting. Through this Expression of Interest process, ESCRS aims to encourage applications from all motivated National Societies which are aligned with its educational objective. 

Expressions of intent should be addressed to the ESCRS Executive Committee and sent by email to the ESCRS Head Office at the Subject “Expression of Interest to Host ESCRS Winter Meeting 2026” by Friday 17 May 2024.
