Barcelona (Spain)

It is expected to welcome 150 participants with different backgrounds in the Andrology field from the COST-associated countries. Sixty participants will be eligible for reimbursement of expenses by the ANDRONET COST Action to participate onsite.

The first ANDRONET hybrid meeting was held at the Centre Esther Koplowitz (IDIBAPS/Fundació Clínic per a la Recerca Biomèdica) in Barcelona (Carrer del Rosselló, 153, 08036 Barcelona, Spain).

During three days, ANDRONET members had the opportunity to meet each other, develop networking activities in a relaxed atmosphere, stimulate collaborations, and contribute to the progression of the Cost Action objectives.

The program of the meeting included:

  • Summary of the overall ANDRONET activities and progress so far.

  • Update on the administrative rules and procedures

  • Open discussions and round tables with the participation of the different Working Group members to discuss and decide the future ANDRONET activities and actions.

  • Presentations by members of the different ANDRONET Working Groups to progress on research collaboration, professional education and male health awareness.

  • Announcement of training activities and short-term scientific missions.

The registration is free for onsite and online participants. ANDRONET COST Action will cover the expenses for the onsite participation of 60 members, but attendants are welcome to participate either onsite or online.
