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 2020

Newsletter September 2020: The ESAIC Mentorship Programme - have the courage to be different!

Alexandru Rogobete

MD, PhD, anaesthesia and intensive care trainee



It all started as a dream; in the beginning somehow vague and blurred but as time went by more and more clear. I entered the ESAIC mentorship programme with a dream, the dream of developing a research network, the dream of learning and experiencing new emotions and that of building new bridges.

In the beginning, I worked with a colleague from Spain and together we tried to walk through the mysteries and across the abyss of clinical research. Step by step, with patience and enthusiasm we managed to create a professional bond that has since stood the test of time, after 2 years after the end of the program. Together and only together we made it through – an impressive number of scientific articles, videoconferences and a new study that we managed to start. In the years to come, we wish to organise and exchange program between both our hospitals and our universities. Through this type of collaboration, we can engage in international research studies and we can also share our clinical experience. An important vector that could aid in achieving this goal is the International Congress for Guidelines and Protocols in Anesthesia and Intensive Care, taking place yearly in Timisoara, as well as the National Congress of the Romanian Society of Anesthesia and Intensive Care where my colleague from Spain will share her experience.

The next year I found more courage and applied for the Mentorship position and got selected. Currently, I am working with a colleague from London. In regard to our collaboration this time we wish to address a controversial topic – extracorporeal epuration techniques in different clinical contexts. Another topic that we have discussed and taken into account is starting to write scientific articles on different topics that have a clinical impact. We are trying to succeed together.

For me, the Mentorship program has been and will continue to be an amazing experience. Having the opportunity to collaborate with colleagues from abroad, to listen to their stories and share my own, to get to know their dreams and hopes are all honour to me. I strongly believe that this is one of the best programmes organised by ESAIC, as it brings together ideas and visions from across Europe. This programme connects people, medical systems and research ideas leading to the formation of a strong medical network between research centres in Europe. I want to thank each and every one of them for this!
