About EDF Annual Meeting

The European Dermatology Forum (EDF) is a non-profit professional organization dedicated to improving the skin health of people in Europe. The EDF is now more than 20 years old, having been founded in 1997 by a group of leading European Professors of Dermatology.


The EDF mission is to implement actions aimed at preventing skin disease and improving the quality of health care for dermatological and venereological patients in Europe, notably by strengthening the position and reducing the health economic impact of dermato-venereology and its several subspecialties, such as allergology and dermato-oncology, to the benefit of our patients and our profession. 


Every year, the EDF organizes a 2-day Annual General Meeting in January with a rich scientific program including plenary lectures, thematic symposia, industry symposia, EDF working group meetings and reports, as well as updates from several European Sister Societies.


The annual meeting of the EDF is attended by over 150 delegates including EDF members, Corporate members and guests. The fascinating scientific program and ideal platform for constructive networking make it a highlight for key opinion leaders in dermatovenereology across Europe.
