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. ESAIC membership equips you with the tools and resources necessary to enhance your daily professional routine, nurture your career growth, and play an active role in advancing anaesthesiology, intensive care and perioperative medicine.

Newsletter 2021

Newsletter October 2021: The Trainee Committee presenting the online educational Facebook sessions

ESAIC Trainee Committee Social Networks Task Force

The ESAIC trainee network aims to establish a link between all European Anaesthesiology Trainees while putting a variety of ESAIC resources in their service. We are currently represented in various social network platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and Twitter. We continuously produce, gather and spread information that we believe and hope will be useful to our followers and all Anaesthesia Trainees worldwide.

In the process of trying to develop new content and concepts, we had the idea of expanding the concept of teaching the trainee from Euroanesthesia. As this is usually a very appreciated event at the Euroanesthesia congress, why not spread it and expand in on the social networks? We came up with the concept of “Facebook live sessions.” The idea is to invite members of the ESAIC community to present a specific topic to the trainees and send this live lecture on our Facebook platform for everyone, followed by a Q & A. With the help of the ESAIC community, we had the opportunity to host Dr Arvid Steiner Haugen, Professor Dr Jannicke Mellin-Olsen and Prof. Peter Dieckmann to come and speak to us about a variety of subjects allowing around 2500 viewers to listen, learn and absorb new knowledge.

Together with the ESAIC Education and Training Committee, we the Trainee committee want to continue to expand this platform to spread the knowledge further.  Today I want to introduce to you the new “Facebook live sessions” that will be happing every second Tuesday of the month. You will have the opportunity to listen to a 20 minute lecture on a specific topic, followed by a 20 minute Q&A with a specialist in his or her area. This session will include topics from all the ESAICs Subcommittees. We have had a great response from so many educators throughout Europe and are truly looking forward to Autumn sessions.

So please, write it down in your calendars, that on the second Tuesday of each month a new and exciting topic will be held around 8:00 PM (CET) on the ESAIC Trainee Network Facebook page. And if you can’t make it, the lecturers will be available for up to one month after the lecture.

Our next sessions will be with the following renowned speakers:

  • Dr Paul McConnell from the Ethics scientific subcommittee on the 5th of October at 8 PM CET
  • Prof Giuseppe Ristagno from critical Emergency Medicine: Trauma and Resuscitation scientific subcommittee the on the 9th of November at 8 PM CET


Looking forward to seeing you all online with exciting new material, all for free!
