Scientific paediatric &
child-related events

In Belgium, many scientific activities are organized for pediatricians and trainees in pediatrics by different national, regional and local authorities.

By concentrating the information, a scientific overview will be optimized with increased visibility and more efficient spread of programs and registration modalities.


All organizers are invited to communicate their scientific activities and child related events, annual congresses, courses and all other initiatives that could be interesting for all professionals involved in the care of the child and his family.
