Organising Societies

The European Society of Paediatric and Neonatal Intensive Care (ESPNIC) is a Europe-wide medical association that works to promote paediatric and neonatal intensive care standards among health care professionals, notably doctors and nurses in the field.

The European Academy of Paediatrics (EAP) exists to promote the health of children and young people in Europe. It aims to improve standards in training, service and research and to represent the professional interests of paediatricians in the EU.

The European Society for Paediatric Research (ESPR) has been at the forefront of Paediatric medical care and innovation since 1958. It is the ESPR’s mission to develop and apply research to improve newborn and child health – from bench to bedside.


The combined efforts of the best and brightest minds in paediatrics have turned EAPS into a major educational and research platform.
