Specialist Societies Committee

The Specialist Societies Committee coordinates all collaborative activities in the areas of anaesthesiology, intensive care, emergency medicine and pain management, between the ESA and the Specialist Societies that have signed a membership agreement with the ESA. The Committee is chaired by the ESA Scientific Committee Chairperson and will meet once a year during the Euroanaesthesia congress. A representative member of each Specialist Society serves as ex-officio member of a relevant Scientific Subcommittee.
