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.

Munich, Germany, will set a perfect backdrop for the next EuroMedLab Congress 2021, hosted jointly by IFCC, EFLM, and the German Society. This premier education event in clinical chemistry and laboratory medicine, will give attendees access to world-renowned faculty from regional and international centres of excellence. The Congress Organizing Committee will be featuring innovative and diverse education opportunities incorporating the best of clinical laboratory medicine and in vitro diagnostics, including lectures, symposia, recent advancements in clinical practice and science, poster presentations, and exciting social events. In addition, look for the latest laboratory technology innovations to come to Germany! This international meeting will connect the latest technological breakthroughs in diagnostic laboratory technology with the best minds in laboratory medicine from Europe and all regions around the world to help you and your team learn the latest and greatest in clinical laboratory science, technology and medicine.

It is my great pleasure to invite all of you to register and participate in the academic sessions and industry exhibits of the 2021 EuroMedLab Congress. Without doubt, the biannual EuroMedLab congresses have proven to be one of the leading forums to bring together scientists, laboratory specialists, clinicians, and industry colleagues in the field of laboratory medicine.  The year 2021 will be an exciting and fast evolving time for the field of clinical laboratory medicine, as the world (and our field) emerges from the global fight against the current pandemic. It will be timely and an excellent opportunity to gather again in an international forum and meet colleagues from across Europe and many other countries around the globe. Our field is confronting a time of many changes and technological advancements, allowing for a much greater role for our professionals as partners in the centre of healthcare. The world of laboratory medicine is an exciting area that is witnessing continued innovations in both IVD technology but also process improvement and electronic communications of patient data.  The IFCC organization is thus pleased to partner with EFLM and MZ Congressi to hold the 2021 congress, enabling scientific exchange and close interactions among laboratory scientists, clinicians, and diagnostic industry leaders. Bringing all of us together in forums like this will ensure that our organization and the field of laboratory medicine remain at the cutting edge.

Munich is a well-known international city, attracting hundreds of thousands of people from all over the world each year, and it is easy to see why it would be a perfect venue to hold the next EuroMedLab Congress. The organizing and scientific organizing committees have planned not only an outstanding scientific program but also social events and opportunities for attendees to enjoy many attractions in and around the city. I wish you all an enjoyable and productive conference and a pleasant stay in the beautiful city of Munich.
