The ESAIC is dedicated to supporting professionals in anaesthesiology and intensive care by serving as the hub for development and dissemination of valuable educational, scientific, research, and networking resources.



The ESAIC hosts the Euroanaesthesia and Focus Meeting congresses that serve as platforms for cutting-edge science and innovation in the field. These events bring together experts, foster networking, and facilitate knowledge exchange in anaesthesiology, intensive care, pain management, and perioperative medicine. Euroanaesthesia is one of the world’s largest and most influential scientific congresses for anaesthesia professionals. Held annually throughout Europe, our congress is a contemporary event geared towards education, knowledge exchange and innovation in anaesthesia, intensive care, pain and perioperative medicine, as well as a platform for immense international visibility for scientific research.


Professional Growth

The ESAIC's mission is to foster and provide exceptional training and educational opportunities. The ESAIC ensures the provision of robust and standardised examination and certification systems to support the professional development of anaesthesiologists and to ensure outstanding future doctors in the field of anaesthesiology and intensive care.



The ESAIC aims to advance patient outcomes and contribute to the progress of anaesthesiology and intensive care evidence-based practice through research. The ESAIC Clinical Trial Network (CTN), the Academic Contract Research Organisation (A-CRO), the Research Groups and Grants all contribute to the knowledge and clinical advances in the peri-operative setting.

Learn more about the ESAIC Clinical Trial Network (CTN) and the associated studies.


EU Projects

The ESAIC is actively involved as a consortium member in numerous EU funded projects. Together with healthcare leaders and practitioners, the ESAIC's involvement as an EU project partner is another way that it is improving patient outcomes and ensuring the best care for every patient.


Patient Safety

The ESAIC aims to promote the professional role of anaesthesiologists and intensive care physicians and enhance perioperative patient outcomes by focusing on quality of care and patient safety strategies. The Society is committed to implementing the Helsinki Declaration and leading patient safety projects.



To ESAIC is committed to implementing the Glasgow Declaration and drive initiatives towards greater environmental sustainability across anaesthesiology and intensive care in Europe.



The ESAIC works in collaboration with industry, national societies, and specialist societies to promote advancements in anaesthesia and intensive care. The Industry Partnership offers visibility and engagement opportunities for industry participants with ESAIC members, facilitating understanding of specific needs in anaesthesiology and in intensive care. This partnership provides resources for education and avenues for collaborative projects enhancing science, education, and patient safety. The Specialist Societies contribute to high-quality educational opportunities for European anaesthesiologists and intensivists, fostering discussion and sharing, while the National Societies, through NASC, maintain standards, promote events and courses, and facilitate connections. All partnerships collectively drive dialogue, learning, and growth in the anaesthesiology and intensive care sector.



Guidelines play a crucial role in delivering evidence-based recommendations to healthcare professionals. Within the fields of anaesthesia and intensive care, guidelines are instrumental in standardizing clinical practices and enhancing patient outcomes. For many years, the ESAIC has served as a pivotal platform for facilitating continuous advancements, improving care standards and harmonising clinical management practices across Europe.



With over 40 years of publication history, the EJA (European Journal of Anaesthesiology) has established itself as a highly respected and influential journal in its field. It covers a wide range of topics related to anaesthesiology and intensive care medicine, including perioperative medicine, pain management, critical care, resuscitation, and patient safety.



Becoming a member of ESAIC implies becoming a part of a vibrant community of nearly 8,000 professionals who exchange best practices and stay updated on the latest developments in anaesthesiology, intensive care and perioperative medicine.

Newsletter 2022

Newsletter August 2022: The activities of the Trainee Network during Euroanaesthesia 2022

Diogo Mendes Morais, Igor Abramovich
ESAIC Trainee Representative, Trainees Committee Chair

During June 4-6. the Euroanaesthesia congress was held in Milan, Italy. Finally, after 3 years since the last congress, Vienna 2019, the trainees were once more reunited in person.

This year, the trainees’ scientific programme included three sessions. The first one, “How to succeed at EDAIC”, gave trainees some valuable tips to tackle parts 1 and 2 of the European diploma. The last two, “Mission (im)possible: residency challenges” and “ESAIC Trainees Committee and National Trainee Sections”, highlighted the difficulties of residency and offered some practical strategies to prevent them, the devastating consequences of fatigue and burnout and the perspective of national and international trainee sections. The sessions are viewable through congress’s on-demand system.

The Trainee Committee and the ESAIC, in general, welcome more trainees’ involvement in society. This is why also, for the first time, trainees stepped onto the opening ceremony stage with a short introduction with Chair Igor Abramovich and Council Representative Nadine van Veenendaal. That symbolic but powerful demonstration of trust proves the tremendous importance of the Trainee Network to ESAIC. It adds responsibility to ESAIC Trainee Committee in our efforts to adequately represent all 22.000 European trainees.

During the congress, we hosted a presentation about ESAIC Trainees Committee to approach trainees and a Quiz organised by us with the National Anaesthesiologists Societies Committee to strengthen bonds with all Trainee Network further.

The social programme presented by the ESAIC Trainees Committee brought trainees together and shed light on the darkness of social loneliness that the pandemics forced us to cope with. We hosted a social event with an Italian aperitivo, held in Parco Sempione and a Breakfast on the last day of the congress. Both events offered invaluable opportunities to share fears and regrets but also meant that we left Milano full of new friends, ideas, hopes and an optimistic view about what remains of residency.

For future note, in September, we will hold, at the ESAIC Headquarters, a meeting between ESAIC and the Trainees Committee to discuss goals and potentially reshape our future path.

We hope to stay in touch with all the Trainees we were able to engage with during the congress. We look forward to seeing everyone and even more trainees next year in Glasgow.
