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.

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.

The ESAIC is excited to officially announce the Euroanaesthesia 2021 hybrid event!

Despite the ongoing challenges our community and field continue to face while leading the charge against COVID-19, our Scientific Committee has built an extensive and excellent scientific programme conceived by and for the Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care Community. This year, the congress programme is the result of over a year of dedicated and engaged work from all members of our Scientific Committee, who have put in extended efforts to produce an outstanding and innovative programme despite the heavy clinical workload in hospitals.

Euroanaesthesia is one of the world’s largest and most influential scientific congresses for anaesthesia professionals. Held annually throughout Europe, our congress continues to be 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.

To adapt to the current situation and ensuing restrictions, this year’s scientific programme has been divided into an in-person and a virtual component. You can join us, your colleagues, and your peers either in-person in Munich, Germany at the Messe München, or virtually from the comfort of your own home or office. Wherever you are, and whatever your needs, we have a solution for you.

Our virtual sessions, which are held in five main session rooms throughout the 3 days, including accessing the full list of the congress’ live-streamed sessions with the opportunity to ask questions to speakers through a dedicated app.

Virtual attendees can also access abstracts and posters and attend a series of poster presentation sessions in the available learning tracks.

Should you choose to attend in-person, on-site we will provide various in-person and interactive lectures, debates, discussions, and meet the expert sessions on a wide variety of topics relevant to your practice, field and interest. Pre-congress courses, workshops and simulation sessions will also be available onsite upon pre-registration and payment of additional fees.

If you missed a session or would like to review them again, OnDemand webcasts will be available directly after the sessions to all our participants (for those presentations that have consented to be recorded and made available in the ESAIC OnDemand library).

Save the date! Registration for the virtual congress opens on 19 May and In-person event registration will open on 16 September 2021.
