About the Society and its Meeting

The European Society for Paediatric Infectious Diseases (ESPID) is a non-profit medical association that focuses on paediatric infectious diseases (PID). Since its foundation in 1983, it has grown to include approximately 1180 members mostly from Europe and increasingly from other continents.

ESPID forms a platform for clinicians and scientists interested in clinical aspects, education, training and research concerning infectious diseases in children, including diagnosis, treatment and prevention with a particular focus on vaccination.

The society is engaged in a large number of activities including collaboration in multicentre trials and projects for surveillance of antimicrobial consumption and resistance in children, international exchange of paediatric infectious disease fellows, educational activities and it organises the leading global annual scientific Meeting in PID. ESPID is also engaged in various partnerships with international organisations such as ECDC, WHO, patient organisations such as CoMO and sister organisations such as ESID, EAP, PIDS, ESWI and WSPID. ESPID provides the opportunity to its members and participants in the Meeting to get involved in research networks.

ESPID Objectives

The purpose of the Society is the promotion of science and research, education and public health in the field of paediatric infectious diseases.

ESPID aims to promote the exchange of information among persons who have special interest in the field of PID by organising an annual scientific meeting and other regular scientific events, establishing international study groups and networks, participating in advisory boards of other relevant societies, organising symposia at other international conventions and by supporting joint publications by members in relevant or affiliated expert journals.

Furthermore, ESPID seeks to promote the development of PID in Europe and throughout the world by:

  • Organising events, courses and similar activities, supporting training programmes in the field of PID including training and travel grants, making awards and giving prizes for achievements in the field;
  • Providing training and vocational training in the field of PID and defining quality criteria of promoting and providing training facilities;
  • Sponsoring collaborative research projects and initiatives involving society members.

Another aim of the Association is the acquisition of funds for the promotion of science and research, education and public health by other bodies or legal entities of public law; the provision of funds for a fully taxable corporation under private law presupposes that it is itself tax privileged.
