The 41st EAPCCT Congress will be a virtual event.
Our custom is to welcome the Clinical Toxicology world to a great European location to share our science and experience in person and to build friendships at social events. However, a virtual congress also facilitates participation of those normally unable to attend to get a ‘flavour’ of the EAPCCT meeting.
Registration is now open; there are special booking offers for early registrants and for SPIs at poisons centres worldwide. For details see the congress website www.eapcct2021.com.
EAPCCT’s Scientific and Meetings Committee are putting the final touches to the packed scientific programme under the leadership of Lotte Høgberg.
Our pre-congress day (25th May) explores the theme of ‘Fundamental and applied studies in poisoning – an overview of their role for the clinical toxicologist’ with an impressive roster of speakers from Europe, Sri Lanka and the USA.
The themes for the main congress (26th – 28th May) include
- Coronavirus-19 and toxicology
- Alcohol as a co-ingestant
- Investigation and management of caustic ingestions
- Toxicology 2.0: new tools for data collection, surveillance and education in poisoning
- Drug Formulation and its importance in the poisoned patient
There will also be the annual Louis Roche Lecture, the Young Investigator Prize and the first ever EAPCCT Fellows’ sponsored lecture to be given by Professor David Christiani (T.H. Chan Harvard School of Public Health, Boston, USA) on Vaping Associated Lung Injury.
In addition, there will be over 300 poster presentations on the aforementioned themes as well as many others including
- Adverse Reactions from Medicines

The posters will be available for view with their associated audio-recordings from 20th May and there will be interactive sessions three times a day for you to discuss their content with the authors directly.
There are also commercial stands for exhibitors and sponsors (details for further applicants are available on the website).
The lectures, live QA and poster discussion sessions will run from 08:45-18:00 CEST.
All sessions will be available for subsequent ‘on-demand’ viewing for all congress delegates viewing within 3 hours.
