  • Aims and objectives of this session

    ESO Observatories are high level sessions organised during major international congresses with the aim of providing the audience with updated and unbiased information on a given topic. An ESO Observatory lasts about one hour and concentrates on a forecast given by a panel of experts on what it is expected to happen in their own field in the coming 12 months. The Panel includes distinguished clinicians and/or scientists and a patient advocate.
    The forecast by each panel member is given in the form of take-home concise messages with a 5 minute slide presentation followed by 3 minutes of discussion for each topic. The forecast will be discussed by the panel.
