EADV-India EADV initiated collaborations in India in 2009 under the auspices of the Best of EADV–INDIA pro- gramme. The provider and organiser of this joint venture was the Indian Association of Dermatologists and Leprologists (IADVL) and Sorento Healthcare Communications. Select EADV members were invited as speakers, alongside Indian dermatologists who were key opinion leaders. There were two on-site meetings per year involving two EADV members as faculty who travelled to Bengaluru, Chennai, Kolkata and New Delhi. The objective of this collaboration was based on selected EADV members to present lectures from recent EADV annual events. This has led to an increase in EADV memberships from Indian dermatologists. Invited EADV speakers included: Vincenzo Bettoli, Klaus Fritz, Alberto Giannetti, Harald Gollnick, Clive Grattan, Eckhart Haneke, Rudolf Happle, Andreas Katsambas, Leonardo Marini, Marina Papoutsaki and Fenella Wojnarowska.
