The story of EASL Impact projects

Value creation at EASL does not stop at its members, partners, and delegates. EASL is committed to providing a lasting, positive impact on the lives of those who are connected to our events, as well as all the people living and working in the communities who host them. EASL Impact Projects are designed to shift the perspective of medical congresses to models that are more sustainable, have a stronger focus on public health, and engage local people, policy makers, and the media.


Starting with the International Liver Congress (ILC) in London, UK in 2022, EASL launched its very first series of impact projects aimed at raising awareness for liver health, promoting early detection and screening, and attracting key talent to the field. In 2023, at the EASL Congress in Vienna, EASL intends to build upon and strengthen these projects to bring long-term positive change to the Viennese population, economy, and healthcare system.
