Info: Welcome to the happiest country in the world! Denmark has developed into one of the strongest clusters in life sciences in Europe, and Copenhagen especially enjoys a central location in the heart of a major knowledge hub with a dense cluster of universities, hospitals and companies within the fields of biotech, medtech and pharma with 165,000 students and 16,000 scientists and researchers.
This city is also among the world’s most popular congress destinations, due to its easy accessibility, high levels of efficiency, low crime rate and successful organisation of sustainable events in the record high number of eco-certified hotels and venues within the city. As such, Copenhagen is also known as one of the most environmentally friendly cities in the world.
We are convinced that all of these achievements and facilities combined offer a unique platform for holding the FESSH congress, and also all the required facilities for organizing the European Examination in Hand Surgery.
The local organizing committee wishes to improve the standard of hand surgery throughout Europe by offering the perfect framework for the XXIII FESSH congress. As such, we will offer the ideal facilities to carry out the work of the Scientific Committee and of the Chairman of the Instructional Course.
We intend to make this congress highly attractive to our younger colleagues, fellows and residents. For this reason, the slogan of the congress is Working for the Future.
Instructional course: Fractures of the Hand and Carpus
Besides the classical topics of hand surgery, we will focus on: Tissue Engineering, Robotic Surgery, Infection, Pain, Rehabilitation and Occupational Disorders.
Our highest priority for the congress is the scientific content, but we also consider our city – Wonderful Copenhagen – to be a perfect choice for social activities and will do our utmost to make this congress an unforgettable event for the FESSH members.
