The Congress of the ERA-EDTA (European Renal Association and European Dialysis and Transplant Association) is Europe's biggest congress on nephrology and renal replacement therapy. Top specialists in the field, not only from Europe but from all over the world, are expected and will be sharing their knowledge and discussing the latest research findings. This year, the Congress will continue as planned on the originally scheduled dates of June 5-8, 2021, but in a fully virtual form.
