Welcome to ECTH 2021.
The fourth edition of the European Congress on Thrombosis and Haemostasis will take place in Ghent, Belgium.

European Congress on Thrombosis and Haemostasis.

We hope to see you in Ghent, Belgium. It is the perfect location to bring together researchers and healthcare professionals from across Europe in the spirit of collaboration, discussion and the translation of science.

This fourth European Congress of Thrombosis and Haemostasis will be an important event for the advancement of Thrombosis and Haemostasis in Europe, and ECTH 2021 will pioneer in the way science will be presented and communicated.

In addition to selected abstract presentations, state of the art lectures and plenaries, we will have guided ‘TEDx-style’ science showcases in the “Science, Fast and Furious” sessions. We will have our poster sessions, and thematic host areas where you can meet your colleagues to discuss new ideas and future challenges.

We are certain that you will enjoy your time in Ghent and we look forward to seeing you around.
