Dear Colleagues and Friends,
it is my distinct pleasure to invite you to the 24th IFCC-EFLM European Conference for Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine “EUROMEDLAB 2021” that is to be held in Munich, Germany from May 16th to May 20th 2021.
Munich is the capital of Bavaria, a German region thriving and booming in latest medical and health technologies, IT sciences/digitalization and a lively Biotech community.
EFLM applauds the German Society of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine (DGKL) for having chosen Munich as the venue for what can be expected to be yet another successful large conference of the splendid EUROMEDLAB series. Munich´s fabulous conference facilities will provide the floor to discussing important developments in the field of Laboratory Medicine from various angles with colleagues from Europe and abroad.
Today, all of us experience the rapidly increasing pace of a changing modern medicine. Within the foreseeable future, we can expect that new concepts in health care will have pronounced and challenging impacts on a professional
discipline so central for efficient diagnostic medicine like ours.
With still more than two years from now, we can already look forward to the 24th EUROMEDLAB conference to provide us with the latest developments and a state-of-the-art account on Laboratory Medicine organized by IFCC, EFLM and DGKL.
Then, a broad range of international speakers, key opinion leaders and stakeholders will bring front-edge topics in health care, diagnostic technologies, scientific advances and professional matters to life. A generous exhibition floor will allow the diagnostic industry to display their latest products.
So please mark May 2021 for your next EUROMEDLAB experience in Munich, Germany. EFLM likes to extend an invitation to you, and we look forward to welcoming you
there.

Dear colleagues and friends,
it is my great pleasure to invite you to EUROMEDLAB 2021 – XXIV IFCC-EFLM European Congress of Clinical Chemistry
and Laboratory Medicine – which will be hosted by the German Society of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory
Medicine (DGKL) from May 16th to May 20th 2021 in Munich.
We have chosen Munich as the Congress City, not only because the capital of Bavaria is at the heart of one of Germany’s most vibrant high-tech and biotechnology regions with world renowned universities and research institutions, but also because Munich has a centuries old history in central Europe. Over recent years, Munich has been ranked in international surveys for quality of living continuously among the top 5 cities worldwide. And last but not least, Munich with its International Congress Center is easy to reach from all over Europe and the world.
DGKL as one of the oldest national societies devoted to clinical chemistry and laboratory medicine is proud to host this exciting event and hold its annual meeting 2021 together with EUROMEDLAB. This is once again a unique opportunity to network with colleagues from Europe and beyond. With EuroMedLab 2021 in Munich we will continue the successful biennial congress format organized by IFCC, EFLM and the hosting national society. The programme will provide a most up-to-date and comprehensive overview of the hot topics in our field. It will cover cutting edge science and novel breakthrough technologies which may reshape our specialty as well as educational sessions. In the commercial exhibition diagnostic companies will present their latest products.
Having said this, we sincerely look forward to welcoming you in Munich in May 2021.
