Welcome Message

Dear Colleagues,

It is a great honor to invite you all to the 45th EDTNA/ERCA International Conference that will take place in Valencia, Spain, 17th – 20th September 2016.

The EDTNA/ERCA is a multi-disciplinary organization for those working in renal care and through the scientific programme we offer a significant and valuable contribution to the care given to those referred to our renal services.
“Quality versus Cost - Sustainable Renal Care” is the theme of this year's Conference where important exchanges of information and experience will take place utilizing the expertise of health care professionals, service leaders, academics, researchers, people with renal disease and industry partners who come together to share innovations and knowledge.

The Conference is a forum for sharing the best research and innovations in practice and helps in initiating and promoting quality renal research and practice around the world.

You will have the opportunity to visit an exciting renal exhibition covering the most up to date technology and research in renal care. We sincerely thank all our industry partners for their generous support.

Valencia is the capital of the autonomous community of Valencia and the third largest city in Spain. The city is situated on the east coast of the Iberian Peninsula. Its historic centre is one of the largest in Spain, which with its unique architecture and culture make this city a magnificent place.

Valencia Conference Centre, where the 45th EDTNA/ERCA International Conference will take place, was designed by Foster and Partners. In 1999 Norman Foster was awarded the Pritzker Architecture Prize, often referred to as the Nobel Prize of architecture.

We look forward welcoming you to the beautiful city of Valencia!
