The PGEC meets virtually every 2 months to decide on the strategy for educational activities, to report on the planned activities and to give feedback on the executed activities. the Committee tries to have one get-together in person during the EASD Annual Meeting and one brainstorming meeting per year.

Each member has an allocated area of expertise e.g. collaborations with national and international associations, basic scientist training courses or clinician training courses.

Our educational portfolio consists of three different tracks, ranging from e-Learning to basic hands-on training courses including workshops to focused meetings on specific topics of diabetes research and care to collaborations with national associations world-wide.

The aim of EASD PGE is to educate, inform and engage healthcare professionals around the world by addressing standard themes in practical diabetology as well as novel and complex themes in modern diabetology that overlap with other medical disciplines.

Our chosen presentations enrich local and regional conferences with EASD expertise in diabetes research and care.

Our courses offer young researchers the opportunity to be trained by an outstanding clinical team on the basic requirements for clinical research. New talents are promoted and diabetes research in centres throughout the world is fostered.

Our workshops and seminars offer an educational exchange, bringing together senior scientists and young investigators; they are aimed at the promotion, enhancement and dissemination of scientific and medical knowledge.
