EBN Teaching Courses

European Board of Neonatology Teaching Courses

Are you interested to learn about (non-invasive) haemodynamic monitoring technologies and discuss their use to provide individualised, pathophysiology-based management in neonatal care? Or would you like to expand your knowledge on optimal drug therapy in newborns and children?

The European Board of Neonatology (EBN) offers full day pre-congress courses at the European Academy of Paediatric Societies’ Congress (EAPS 2020) in Barcelona, Spain, on 15 and 16 October 2020.

For the EBN pre-congress courses leading international experts in their respective fields join forces to provide you with the latest knowledge on research and its application in an interactive environment.

Key information:

  • Course 1: Optimal Drug Therapy in Newborns and Children (full programme)
  • Course 2: Neonatal Haemodynamics (full programme)
  • When: Thursday, 15 October 2020 & Friday, 16 October 2020 (full day)
  • Cost: One-day attendance EUR 150; two-day attendance EUR 200
  • Registration deadline: Wednesday, 30 September 2020

How to register:

The registration to the EBN courses will be shortly online via the EAPS 2020 website.


EBN teaching courses are open to any medical professional who supports the aims of the European Society for Paediatric Research (ESPR).

Participants of the EBN courses do not need to register for the entire EAPS Congress. Please note that a registration for the EBN courses alone does not constitute a registration to EAPS 2020.

As spaces are limited, course registration works on a ‘first come, first serve basis’. It will close once 50 participants have been reached.
